I am 18 years old and will be moving down to Chicago on Thursday and taking a job as a proprietary trader at one of the local prop firms in the downtown area. They are starting me out working the asian shift so I wouldn't be getting off work until around 1am. Does anybody know of any good apartments downtown that are fairly cheap, clean, good security, etc? The office is about 2 blocks away from Presidential Towers but I have heard that this is not a very good apartment complex and has many problems. I have also heard that the place to be is lincoln park especially if your a young guy and want to be with the college crowd (which would be nice). However isnt that like 15 minutes from downtown? Based on my salary I really couldn't afford to take a cab that far every night. Even if I could be lucky enough to find an apartment within a couple blocks how safe would it be to walk that distance at 1am? Any help you guys can give me would be great.......as I move Thursday and the clock is ticking for me haha!
