Photos: Early spring walking tour through the Gold Coast

GOLD COAST SHORE REPORT — The official first day of spring was March 20, 2017, so we’re already more than a week into it.

It sure doesn’t feel like it, though.

But even though we’ve endured weeks of grey and blah weather, we took advantage of the slowly warming temperatures to take a walking tour through the neighborhood.

Here are some of the places we passed by:

North Lake Shore Drive from the park across from the Drake Hotel.

The Mantonya flats on Dearborn was built in 1887 by builder Lucius B. Mantonya and architect Curd H. Gottig. It may have originally served as a single-family home. Unit No. 2 of the condos went on sale in early 2017 for $699,000.
