Crain's reports that a new book called “Chicago's Gold Coast” which retails for $21.99 is about to be released by Arcadia. One of the three authors said in the Crain's interview, that the book isn't really about society because "names come and go" yet the foreword is by Richard Driehaus and contributions also come from Ramsey Lewis and Leslie Hindman all of whom have their own Wikipedia entries.
