If you want lake - lakeview/Lincoln Park. Pro - very stable, Lakeshore path, red line and buses downtown. Negative - older apartments w fewer upgrades, restaurant and bar scene is older - people have gone to the same bars and restaurants since the 1990s. Getting to/from the Kennedy can suck.

Wicker Park/Bucktown/Logan Square - basically a fresher version of Lincoln Park, but not on the lake (you get the 606, instead) and has the blue-line to get you to downtown or O’Hare. Fresher restaurants.l and bars. Lots of new buildings being built.

River North/Loop/South Loop/West Loop/Fulton Market - much closer to the “city” feel than the other neighborhoods. RN - center of tourist area, so lots to do...but tourists. Most of the New Yorkers I know moved there, first. Loop has changed a lot, but still largely empty on weekends and you’ll be leaving to go to bars/restaurants that aren’t steakhouses or on Michigan Avenue. West Loop/Fulton Market is awesome for restaurants and bars and access to the loop/expressway. Rents are high and will increase with McDonald’s, Google, and others moving major operations into those areas.

I've been working at a small marketing agency for 3 years now. I started when I was an intern and they ended up hiring me full time.

My intern included graphic design and web development but I didn't really get too far into the developer role. My starting salary was 32k/yr and three years, two title changes and raises later I'm only at 42k/year.

Question about tenants.. I have this inherited tenant who I am 90% sure are involved in some type of drugs scheme. The parents recently passed and they called each other “fiancée” and the adult daughter and her “fiancée” want to rent on their own. Long story short I’ve gotten them out of the house but then I was talking to a cousin of the estate and when I said fiancée and who was trying to live there he kind of chuckled and said I’m not even going to go there… Is fiancée code for something ??
