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.

Lakeview has plenty of beautiful, tree-lined neighborhoods and a robust bar and restaurant scene. It is a destination neighborhood with tons of boutiques, Wrigley Field, and a welcoming environment. I chose to live here because I am gay and wanted to have very easy, direct access to the lakefront path for running and biking.
The main reason we moved here was the neighborhood. Broadway, Clark, Diversey and Belmont are all within walking distance and offer all of the shops, restaurants, bars and grocery stores you could need. It really is in a prime, unbeatable location. Not to mention it's a block from Lake Michigan and walking distance to Lincoln Park and a short bike ride from Montrose Beach.
My street and neighborhood are usually fairly quiet. Sundays seem to be the going out day in the neighborhood but it isn't disruptive to my every day life. Overall it seems like a very safe area and being a young woman living alone, that is very important. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
The area of lakeview this apartment is in is between where the bars start in Wrigleyville at Clark and Sheffield and Boystown at Newport and Halstead. The street itself is pretty quiet but there are plenty of options for bars since it's right near Wrigley Field and Boystown. There are also plenty of great restaurant options, and it's a 6 minute walk to the Addison red line or a 10 minute walk to the Belmont stop.
I love Lakeview! There's honestly something for everyone somewhere in the neighborhood. From Wrigleyville's baseball and country bars to the rowdy drag shows of Boystown, you can have a totally new experience a few blocks from something else. Lots of great food for both a quick, cheap meal and a sit-down dinner, and some fun local shopping too.
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.
Lakeview has a great bar/restaurant scene, but it is very congested. I dread Pride Weekend every year, and I won't go near the Clark/Addison area if I can help it. I like being close to the lake and multiple bus routes, as well as number full-service grocery stores.
