Think your rent is too damn high? Take a look at your neighborhood's median one- and two-bedroom rents on these maps, provided by real-estate site Zumper, and compare it to what you're shelling out. Or just marvel at what people are paying on the Near North Side ($2,020 for a one-bedroom? What?).

To the surprise of no one, rents are lower the farther away you are from that pricey epicenter. On the North Side, Irving Park ($900 for a one-bedroom) is still a relative bargain, while on the South Side, Bridgeport ($770 for a one-bedroom) and McKinley Park ($660 for a one-bedroom) are shockingly cheap. But look at Logan Square: At $1,225 for a one-bedroom, it's no longer a cheap, bohemian neighborhood. Can the stroller-pushers be far behind?
