As a renter, it’s still very possible to find a nice apartment with a monthly rent that won’t leave you eating ramen noodles and canned soup every night. This three-bedroom apartment just a block west of Humboldt Park (the park) is a perfect example. It’s a classic Chicago-style unit, but it’s clear that the landlord takes pride in the unit. Everything is clean and the old maple hardwood floors have been recently refinished. If you’re looking for luxury finishes, this isn’t it—but there are a slew of new upscale apartments opening up nearby on Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square and Bucktown.
