Admittedly, there's not a whole heck of a lot of space in this studio. Then again, the rent is on point, there's in-unit laundry, a fitness room and rooftop deck. Also, the beach is just a walk away.
Say you want to live alone, but don't want to pay the exorbitant prices of Chicago's trendiest neighborhoods. Well, good news. Add a little more commute time on your way into the Loop (or subtract some commute time if you work in the north suburbs), and you have Edgewater, one of the city's most unsung neighborhoods.
Edgewater is especially ideal for singles who prefer to live without a roommate's dirty dishes in the sink. Even so, when we asked the team at Zumper to find the cheapest apartments for singles in Edgewater, they came up with a few that would also work for couples, families and a group of close-knit buds.
