In 1933, Mayor Ed Kelly tried to change the name of a Chicago street in response to a request by Emily Napieralski, a key supporter. But business owners on the street objected to the name change, and it took 19 years of legal battles to get it done. What was the street?

The answer is Pulaski Road, which was once (and still is, in the suburbs) Crawford Avenue. Many people knew the correct answer on this one, but the first one in was Dan Kobel of Chicago, so Dan gets the umbrella.
