Is it legal
to advertise by taping posters to telephone poles, bus shelters, boarded up storefronts, etc? Do outfits like Poster Giant
have some kind of special exception?

I see it a lot, and it seems like an effective, low-budget way of spreading the word about things (something the tiny nonprofit I run, which does a lot of public-event type programming, could benefit from!)
However, this seems like it's likely illegal (even if widely practiced) — and especially if I were postering on behalf of my organization, I wouldn't want that!
I am in Chicago, if anyone has any local knowledge.
