The Near North Side is one of 77 well defined community areas of Chicago, Illinois. It is located north of the Chicago River and the downtown central business district (the Loop). The Gold Coast is the wealthiest neighborhood in Chicago and the second wealthiest neighborhood in the United States. Only Manhattan's Upper East Side is more affluent. The Gold Coast consists mostly of high-rise apartment buildings on Lake Shore Drive, facing Lake Michigan, but also includes low-rise residential blocks inland.

As with many neighborhoods, its exact borders are subject to dispute, but generally extend from North Ave. south to Division St. and west to LaSalle St. and also includes the areas east of State St. south to Oak St. and east of Michigan Ave. south to Walton St.

The Gold Coast was an unexceptional neighborhood until 1885, when Potter Palmer, former dry goods merchant and owner of the Palmer House hotel, built a fanciful castle on Lake Shore Drive.

Over the next few decades, Chicago's elite gradually migrated from Prairie Avenue to their new homes north of the Loop. The "Gold Coast Historic District" was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 30, 1978.

Gold Coast is zoned to the following Chicago Public Schools schools: Ogden School, O.A. Thorp Scholastic Academy (a magnet school) and Lincoln Park High School.

Old Town (sometimes called Old Town Triangle) is a neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois, bounded by Armitage Avenue on the north, Division Street on the south, Larrabee Street on the west, and Clark Street on the east. It sits inside the community areas of Lincoln Park and the Near North Side, and is part of Chicago's 43rd ward. Old Town is today considered an affluent and historic neighborhood, home to many of Chicago's older, Victorian-era buildings.In the 1950s,the majority of this area was an enclave to the first Puerto Ricans to emigrate to Chicago.

They referred to this area as part of "La Clark" until commercialization decorated late 1960s shop signs with the name of Old Town. The neighborhood is home to St. Michael's Church, originally a Bavarian-built church, and one of 7 to survive the path of the Great Chicago Fire .St.Michael's,Holy Name Cathedral,Immaculate Conception and St.Joseph's catered also to Latinos with Spanish speaking masses.
