Quite and safe apartment, but pricey

I have lived in my apartment for two and a half years. While I thought I'd move out after the first year of law school to find something more affordable, I stayed because I really love my apartment.

I have a spacious studio with a view of the lake. I have lots of storage space, with two huge closets that have lots of shelving. The apartment is so warm in the winter that I never turn on the heat. It's typically very quiet, and my neighbors are friendly. I love the location--I'm steps away from the 171, 6, and 55, and three blocks from the grocery store. A property manager works in the lobby most days, which is helpful for getting packages, maintenance help, and getting locked out.

My biggest complaint is the price, but if someone stayed here with a roommate it would be more affordable. They charge $30/month for one pet (twice that for two), which also isn't great.

Hyde Park Reviews

The convenience of getting to campus cannot be beat. I feel relatively safe as a young woman here. I have never been robbed thus far. Thankfully there are lots of police officers. I get my groceries at hyde park produce and whole foods, which are both pretty convenient. The 172 is great. I just wish it ran later at night for late classes.
Great neighborhood. 53rd street is very safe. Security at every corner and University buses run up and down it all day. Also very close to many food/grocery options.

You may a premium for the amenities/convenience, but excellent location if you’re okay with bus commute or biking
It's not the first place I would have liked to live, but it's closest to the university. The biggest drawbacks are that there are no traditional grocery stores or affordable food options. It is nice to be close to the lake and promontory point.
Hyde Park is great to be in for 1L since you'll need to be at the law school *all the time.* It's charming, but really there's not a whole lot going on here. The lack of good restaurants is really brutal.
Close to campus, lots of restaurants. Not super close to grocery stores anymore, but not too bad. Lots of beautiful trees and old brownstones, not too crowded, housing tends to be very affordable.
Plenty of restaurants and shops. I've rarely felt unsafe, but of course, I've heard about other people's negative experiences with safety in the area.
I live five minutes from Whole Foods, Target, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, the 2 bus, the 172 bus, etc. Everything is within walking distance.
Kinda isolated from Chicago's social scene and cooler neighborhoods, but very convenient at least. Easy to focus in first year.
