    Moving to Chicago, where to live?

    Advertisements



    Hi all,
    I'll be starting an elective in August in chicago, and was wondering if anyone was moving away and had a lease to offer OR knew a good property to rent from/ area to live in if I'm rotating at Jackson Park.

    Looking forward to it, I hear the pizza is fantastic in chi-town!!

    I loved living in Gold Coast--especially in the summer. Lincoln park is nice. There is a company that rents rooms for med students (search this forum). I didn't stay with them but I know those that did and seemed to be ok

    Don't live on the South side!!! Stay North. Lincoln Park is great, but a little pricey. Anywhere near there is good (Lakeview, Roscoe Village, Wrigleyville). If you have to live near the South side, the only acceptable area is Hyde Park.

    contact the hospital you're rotating at to see if they offer free housing or have things available
    but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.
