I'm moving to Chicago in mid-June for a psychology internship -- the last year of our pre-doctoral clinical training. I'll be working at the University of Chicago's Medical Center in Hyde Park. My work situation is that I'll probably be putting in ~60-65 hours/week, meaning that I would like to avoid super long commutes if I could, although I am open to an hour or a little more, particularly if it were by train. I'll be in Chicago for at least one year, and possible two more (for post-doctoral residency), but for the next two years, even if I stay in Chi-town, it might not be at U of C, but at a different hospital. I have a car, that I generally intend to keep, and I also have two cats, which is an important part of the equation. The pay for the internship is, predictably, crap, but my preference is a $700-1100 one bedroom apartment of about 600 square feet or larger. There seem to be options in Hyde Park that fit my criteria, but they only have streetside parking (Is that usable? Does streetside parking mean that the car must be moved every day, or can it be left there while I'm at work, if I walk?), and they do not have central AC. Any suggestions from any of my Chi-town peeps about what I should be looking at? Would you recommend going North or far South of Hyde Park, or to the South Loop, or would you recommend staying in HP? Any other thoughts? Thank you!
