  green with envy?

Favorite thing: Not all of the beautiful townhomes in the Gold Coast are red, or brown, or white. A few, like this one opposite the Ambassador East Hotel, are made of a beautiful greenstone. I think it's called "serpentine limestone," and you can also see it on the Green Stone church in the Pullman neighborhood.

The green house is on Goethe, between N. State Parkkway and Astor, opposite the entrance to the Ambassador East hotel.
