Well, I officially have an apartment in Chicago...hoorah! I feel so relieved to be done with the whole finding housing via a remote location ordeal. I've been searching for apartments online for several months.
The studio apartment I've found is adorable! Vintage 3-story walk-up. Beautiful hardwood floors. Crown molding. Awesome paint color. Big closet. Charming old houses along my street. Lakeshore drive at the end of my block. Tiny kitchen but I'll survive.
I'll reside in the Lakeview neighborhood, only a 20-25 min train ride into the city. Trader Joe's = 9 minute drive. Target = 10 min. Costco = 10 min. TJ Maxx = 8 min. Oh, and did I mention I can walk to Wrigley Field?! Plus, there's a Starbucks kitty corner to my building.
596 Hawthorne here I come...lookout Chicago, IL! I'm coming to the Windy City.
