I am planning to move to Chicago and work near IL 60603 area. I am Indian and would like to see the affordable housing (app. 900 USD/mon) and good school. I am not planning to have a car @ an year. I would like to travel @ 30/40 mins to the office (preferred# Bus considering less walking in winter season) Which area is good for me? I would also like to have the India grocery shop and rest near by. Please help to suggest

Look in the West Ridge neighborhood on the north side. Should be able to find something in your price range, though drawback is you would have to take a bus to the Red Line.

The Devon Avenue (in Chicago) - here is an article about it. A few years old but still informative.

You could look on "Craig's List" for apartments in that area. Look for an apartment near the "Morse Avenue" el train - will take you downtown. Its called "the el" because its elevated above street level..

If you are not going to be able to have a car, don't even think about living in the suburbs. The city area around Devon Ave. mentioned above has both public transportation and grocery stores. The bus to the L line will take a long time though.

If you're going to school full time, you can get a free bus pass during the school year so you don't need a car anyway.

The bus pass is called U-pass.
