The Gold Coast?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 20 October 2020 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Honey locust trees showcase their autumnal gold color as spotted along the median of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. It makes one wonder where this Chicago neighborhood (The Gold Coast) actually got its name. As it turns out, it has nothing to do with the autumnal beauty, but the wealth of the neighborhood's residents. Gold Coast ranks as one of the richest urban neighborhoods in America with a median household income of approximately $160,000.

To me, the wealth of the neighbourhood would lie in these trees, Steven

Stunning street view thanks to yellow trees. Large houses are needed, of course, because there are a lot of people living in the area who need to be provided with roads, services and jobs in addition to housing.

Your title pre-empts me. I have one in the pipeline. Stunning colour and what a contrast to the buildings behind. Perhaps they should use some of their disposable income to gold leaf the concrete :)

With all that gold, the neighborhood can afford the golden trees. ;-) Plus, it probably has great schools, first class streets, etc.
