Affordable Housing In Lakeview (Comes With A Cost)

Units in this building are cheap - under $900 for a one bedroom in East Lakeview is ridiculous, but they come at the cost of any hint of luxury. Appliances are small and old, pipes are leaky, faucets drip, floors are covered in cheap linoleum tiles and that chip and crack with age. Bedrooms are barely big enough for a double bed, sliding mirrored closet doors are poorly aligned and easily crack. Windows are not well sealed and let in a draft - they are simply too small for the frames and cannot be sealed well without replacement. Management only has office hours 9a-5p Monday through Friday which makes picking up packages virtually impossible unless you take time off of work. Elevator is regularly out of service, which is fine for people on 2nd floor but a pain for people on the 6th or those with disabilities/pregnant/the elderly who cannot do lots of stairs. Radiator heat is free but applied randomly - sometimes outdoor temperatures will be a balmy 60 and the heat will be on, sometimes it will be below freezing outside with no heat turned on. Super/maintenance lacks interest in fixing things to the point that we've stopped asking - our stove doesn't work but when two burners went out he said they were fine and left without fixing them so we simply don't use our stove any longer.

For all the complaints, it's still hundreds of dollars less than the next clean, bug free, safe, locked entry mid-rise in the neighborhood. The neighbors are polite, if not friendly, and you hear very little noise from adjacent units except for the occasional water in pipes when someone showers. It is free of any significant infestations (cockroaches, bed bugs, spiders, rodents), just the typical Chicago house centipede once in a while. It isn't pretty but it is affordable, private, safe, quiet, and management is pretty laid back. If all you're looking for is the absolute basics and an absolutely basic price, it's a great option.

This apartment is in the heart of lakeview, being between Wrigleyville and Boystown. There's no shortage of bars, restaurants, and things to do. It's also close enough to the lake to take a bike ride down to the beach or run along lake shore drive.
It is a very safe and friendly neighborhood. We have block parties in the summer on our block. There are lots of restaurants in our neighborhood and a really big Whole Foods around the corner. There are less chain restaurants and more neighborhoody smaller restaurants and cafe that I love - including the neighborhood favorite Scooter's Frozen Custard down the road.
There are a bunch of different places to choose from if you want to eat out. It is located right by Wrigley Field, so you can actually hear concerts/baseball games if the wind blows in the right direction! A lot of young people live in this neighborhood. Located right by Boys Town. A bunch of different grocery stores nearby- Jewel even has a parking garage if you want to drive! Very close to Public Transit - Red/Brown/Purple line & Buses. Noise level is moderate. Walgreens is a 2 minute walk away if you need milk/eggs or medication immediately. Wish there were more coffee shops, but there are only a few.
Lakeview is a strange neighborhood seeing slow change due to continued popularity and ongoing gentrification. What used to be a low-middle income area full of LGBT people and ethnic minorities is becoming more white bread and upper middle class.

It has numerous sub-neighborhoods, including the super bro-y Wrigleyville and the still queer Boystown. It has a mix of lower income co-op housing and slowly dying out SRO housing with luxury condos and high rises.

The area is generally safe, though the occasional mugging does occur and bar fights happen closer to the stadium on the regular.

The neighborhood is often loud and bustling with people, with hospitals on both ends (St. Jo's and Advocate to the south and Thorek to the north) so a lot of ambient ambulance and fire truck noise is normal, plus sounds from people going to and from the many bars and restaurants lining Broadway, Belmont, Halsted, and Clark. Festivals draw neighbors into the streets and block traffic frequently during the summer, including Pride, Market Days, Lakeview Arts Fest, and others.
More and more people are moving to Lakeview to the point where it's too saturated for my liking. With everyone trying to move to the neighborhood rent prices have increased dramatically. We decided to stay where we are because all the other buildings we looked at in the area had WAY higher rent and they were worse units
I absolutely love living in Lakeview East. Has a very homey community feel, and it is very safe. Right near all my public trans needs and accessible to many entertainment needs (Wrigley Field, Boystown, Lincoln Park, etc). Extremely pet friendly and family oriented neighborhood.
I absolutely LOVE living in Lakeview! This neighborhood has a great neighborhoody feel with so many great bars and restaurants. It is also so close to the lake, and very accessible to getting downtown! I wouldn't want to live anywhere else int he city!
I love living in Lakeview, it has a great community feel and lots of neighborhood events. The neighborhood also includes Wrigleyville (if that's your sort of thing) and Boystown, so tons of places to go out no matter what you're into.
