I'm moving to Chicago and I've noticed there's a pretty strong contingent of Chicagoans here at MR, so I thought I'd test the waters and see if anyone has suggestions, etc. Here's my situation: I just got in last night and am currently staying at a friend of a friend's 2BR in Lakeview. I'm currently crashing on their couch, but one of the roommates will move out in a few weeks and I am welcome to move in if I want. His place is really nice and about a block from a train stop, but I'd probably be willing to live with less nice if I could find a cheaper place. If I stayed here I'd be paying something like $650 for rent and utilities, etc. I'm shopping some craigslist places today, but if any of you know of anything worth checking out (either apartments or other listing services) I'd appreciate the help. Thanks!
