Joe Steffen will lead a 2 hour, 3.2 mile walk past over 50 surviving 19th-century mansions and townhouses in the Gold Coast and Washington Square historic districts, which from a distance look like all high-rise condo buildings, following this route. We will walk even if it is raining, so bring an umbrella or poncho.
