welcome to the 50th Ward

The most diverse and wonderful community in the City of Chicago.

Meet Alderman Debra Silverstein

Hello to all my friends and neighbors in the 50th Ward. I am always available and happy to help with any city needs. I hope to hear from you soon!

A Message from Alderman Silverstein

“The 50th Ward is the most diverse and wonderful neighborhood in the City of Chicago. There is nowhere else where you can visit an Indian restaurant, a Kosher bakery, and a Muslim bookstore all within a few blocks. If you live here, you know how great it is. If you don’t, come on up and see what the 50th Ward has to offer!”

Yesterday, our dedicated 50th Ward staff had the pleasure of joining the Pakistani Urban Development Delegation from Islamabad, DePaul University, Devon SSA, and the Rogers Park Business Alliance for an insightful walking tour down Devon Avenue.

We explored the vibrant community, stopping at the iconic Sabri Nihari restaurant for some delicious cuisine, admiring beautiful street murals, and appreciating the green spaces and streetscape infrastructure that make our neighborhood unique.

Thank you to everyone who participated and made this event a success! Together, we continue to build stronger, more connected communities. #50thward #OnDevon

The Chicago region is in for more extreme weather today, with dangerous heat and severe thunderstorms. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 90s but feel more like 100-110 degrees. Strong thunderstorms are expected in the evening with potentially destructive wind and the possibility of flash flooding.

Please be aware of the very real risks of heat stroke and dehydration and try to limit outdoor activity. Also remember to check on relatives, neighbors and friends, especially the elderly, to make sure they are safe.

Residents in need of relief from the heat can visit one of the City’s cooling centers. The closest is the North Area Center at 845 W. Wilson. Many public facilities can also serve as temporary cooling centers, including police stations, libraries, and park district buildings. Find a map of all the locations at: data.cityofchicago.org/Health-Human-Services/Cooling-Centers-Map/cj7n-sh49.

If your home is dangerously hot, call the 50th Ward Office or 3-1-1 to find the location of the nearest City cooling center or request a senior well-being check.
