One of the beautiful things about living in Chicago is that you don't have to live in a shoebox, however for those looking for one, there are plenty of options. Take for instance this 300 square foot lofted studio in Albany Park. It's teeny-tiny, but can be had for $580 per month. With studios edging past $1,000 in Logan Square, many renters are moving to nearby Humboldt Park, Avondale and Albany Park for apartments that are a bit more affordable. There's really not much to see here, but for someone just looking to park their stuff somewhere and save on cash, then it could be a decent option. You'd just have to make sure you don't bump your head when waking up.
