I am considering taking a position at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) main campus. Where in Chicago should I considering living?
What neighborhoods should I be considering?
How safe is the area around IIT?
The campus looks fairly well served by public transportation including the CTA red and green lines and a Metra station. I plan on renting an apartment or condo at first.
-Easy parking for my car and another. I need to drive my car to other cities regularly and my partner also needs a parking spot.
Things I Like:
-Easy access to public transportation
-Safe and low crime neighborhoods
-Other interests include ultimate frisbee, sailing, windsurfing, biking
-I think I would prefer to live in a more urban area
-Relatively low cost but nice housing options.
-Asian grocery stores
-Easy access to green spaces
