Westphillylocal.com reports that a film crew in town taping a TV show called How to Get Away (which the writer suspects could be Viola Davis’s pilot How to Get Away With Murder) has posted signs saying that traffic will be disrupted in the following locations:

East side of 42nd Street, from Locust to Spruce – Wednesday, March 5th through Friday, March 28th  at 7 p.m.

Both sides of 42nd Street from Locust to Spruce, south side of Locust Street from 40th to 42nd and north side of Spruce from 40th to 42nd – Today (Tuesday, March 10th ) at 10 p.m. until Thursday, March 13th at 8 a.m. and Sunday, March 16 at 10 p.m. through Wednesday, March 19 at 8 a.m.


The blogger posted a photo of the flyer, which reads, "We are guests in your neighborhood and will do everything to minimize any disturbances caused by our presences. If you have any questions or concerns about deliveries or handicapped access, please contact [redacted] at [redacted].”

    Yes, Josh Middleton – I bet it feels really great to troll someone who is merely doing their jobs simply because you have to park an additional block away. This is a person who works 12+ hours a day with one day off a week, if lucky. I hope you feel really great about yourself.
