I’m originally a Suburban dog (since I was 7 weeks old).
Then for 10 months and 2 days I was an Island dog.
Currently (just for a couple of weeks), I’ll be a City dog.
I’ll be living in the downtown area of City of Chicago known as the Gold Coast.
Most city downtown dogs live in a tall building known as a high rise.
The photo above was taken from our balcony.
I am accustom to see grass, plants, and trees in my backyard.
Instead, my city backyard is a railed cemented patio with the view of the skyline of Chicago.
Chicago surely has beautiful architecture and great skyline, day or night.
Did you know that Chicago is the third largest city in the USA.
The Gold Coast neighborhood is one of Chicago’s most treasured residential areas.
Chicago’s Gold Coast got its start in the late 1800’s as the Astor Street District, named after John Jacob Astor. At that time, John was one the richest guys in the country. He did not live in Chicago but he was respected and had several achievements. It provided the Gold Coast neighborhood a status of wealth. The Gold Coast neighborhood got expanded as many high rise residential buildings were built. Also, it is surrounded by luxurious shops. Michigan Avenue (known as the Magnificent Mile) of the Gold Coast is know as the shopping destinations for many visitors to the city and local residents.
I’m surely a lucky Golden Dog to be living temporarily in the Gold Coast of Chicago.
* It’s snowing and cold and not ideal for taking photos of ME.
For sure, we will do a follow up post of the Gold Coast Chicago in Spring/Summer.*
Chicago is a beautiful city and a great place to visit.

It’s not my first time to be in the Downtown, City of Chicago.
I’ve visited one of the tallest building, Willis Towers
(known to the locals as the Sears Towers). Click Here to read my post.
I’ve also been on the Magnificent Mile bridge. Click Here to read my post.
