Of the two zips you listed in Chicago, the first is in "the Loop," the latter is outer suburbs (just past Schaumburg).

There are some nice suburbs out that way, but you wouldn't want to commute out to there daily from the city. The Metra does run to Schaumburg, but you'd still have a hop from there to Hoffman Estates where it seems the office is.

The Loop is very easy to access if you're planning to live in the city proper, and is served by several El lines (Red/blue/orange/purple/green) as well as a variety of bus lines. It's also a shortish walk into the Loop from Union Station if you were commuting in on the Metra, but it doesn't sound like suburbs is what you want.

Your big consideration is going to be housing budget. If you can drop $1500 for a 1/1, you can probably find a nice condo right off LSD. If you're looking to spend under $1000, you either have to look at apts a bit farther north (say, Rogers Park) but still on the Red line, or look W/NW. If you really want to be amidst the hustle and bustle Lakeview/Boystown/Wrigleyville are options to look at.

I confess to not knowing much about housing south/SW of the loop.

In most of the country, it's lysergic acid

But in Chicago it's a common shorthand for Lake Shore Drive. (I just tested and even Google Maps knows what you mean if you type 'LSD' into the location bar.)
