New to Chicago and looking for an apartment, I really like the river north area on Hubbard and Kinzie near Gilt bar. Thoughts? Suggestions? How safe is the area?

That’s a nice part of town. The most you’ll deal with are drunk club hoppers and tourists shopping on the weekends. Check out Gold Coast, West Loop, and South Loop as well. All pretty hip areas with nice building choices.

I did a studio, very spacious with nice view and huge walk in closet for $1600

Great area for going out :) I live in the area, let us know if you decide to move here. It's easy to walk to work and lots of restaurants, very safe, always lots of people around, and full of life. I'd guess the age range of people in my building is 24 to 45.

Cons: bit pricier and less of a neighbourhood feel. Tourists.

Go a couple blocks up towards wells and Ontario and there are a few new luxury rental high rises, just a short walk to the action on Hubbard

Check out Kingsbury Plaza and Hubbard Place - two luxury highrises right there. If you look two blocks west from Gilt Bar, there are also a bunch of other options: Echelon, K2, Alta, even though technically you are not in River North anymore

Once when I was waiting tables, I had a guy pay me cash. The change was 45 cents, which I didn't give back to him because like who wants that. He then asked where the change was, and when I explained that I didn't give back the loose change, he made a big stink about how dollars and cents matter and didn't leave me a tip. He was a republican staffer on capitol hill.

I'm 67 and been solo for almost 30 yrs. Hubby is retiring next month.I've way cut back on my work- no paralegal anymore but insurance still costs about $3800. Yesterday, I received my 2d unsolicited job offer for a position I would have jumped at 6 months ago. Hubby said to go for it if I want, but we haven't done anything but work for decades. I do not seem to have the oompf- maybe I need a break. What is going on now- 2 super job offers in 2 months? Anyone else seeing this happen?
