I’m moving to Chicago once offices start opening back up. Any recommendations of where to live? Thinking about spending between $1200-$1750 on rent. I also have a puppy so I’m looking to live alone.

I am moving out May 31. My apartment is 1br with a lake view of Belmont H outside my bed and living room. $1550

TY!

I would recommend East Lakeview. You’re close to the lake (for running), close to lots of restaurants on Broadway, and close enough to Boystown without being right in it.

West Loop and South loop are easy commutes, and you can probably find a decent 1bd for that price range in those places. Though I don't see much going on in those neighborhoods by way of good bars/restaurants. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Congrats! You’ll love it there. I miss all the awesome Chicagoans.

I second south loop and west loop.
I lived in south loop close to the stadium, museums and navy pier .. walkable area for grocery stores but parking could be an issue if it doesn’t come with you apt.

Enjoy! Great people and fun times.

What are you into ie Bars, Restaurants, hobbies? Commute distance preferences? And demo you want to be around

Try Southport corridor (off the Southport brown line stop) we loved living there. Also Lincoln Square if you like the neighborhood vibe - has some cool old school neighborhood restaurants & bars

I’m tired of pivoting. I feel like my job has growth potential and I like my company. Also it seems like my company places a lot of emphasis on experience and I can only get that with time.

On the other hand I work on a small team and there is definitely room for improvement. I think the issue is the size of the team? Like, if there were 2-3 more people it wouldn’t be too bad.

I’m conflicted. Thoughts?
