Gold Coast & Washington Square Walk

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.

Directions: CTA: Take the Red Line to Clark/Division, or the 22 or 36 bus. Important CTA notice: Service Disruption, Bus Substitution on Loop ‘L’.
Driving: Take Lake Shore Drive to the North Ave. exit, go west to Clark St., and south to Division St. Street parking is $4/hour, 2 hours max, or there is a parking garage on State St. north of Division St.
