Gold Coast Mansions Get Out The Haunt

The Halloween bug seems to have bitten our Gold Coast Spy.  She sent in a few dozen photographs showing how the mansions in the Gold Coast are decorated for Halloween this year.

Those of us who live in skyscrapers count on people in houses to decorate properly for the holidays and we take long walks through the neighborhoods to appreciate their work.  Word from our spy is that there are lots of people wandering the area around the Astor Street Historic District these days taking in the spooky sights.  If you’re looking for something seasonal to do this weekend, it’s a good chance to appreciate some great historic homes and see how the other half haunts.
