Hi I'm looking for furnished housing from May 29-July 4 for one person and from July 27-Sept 3 for two people. I want to be within a 45 minute public transit commute of west 16th street, within the loop if possible, and have the rent under 1500/month/person.

Anyone have any recommendations?

Much appreciated! Thanks!

What part of West 16th Street? This isn't Manhattan where east-west is only 2 miles or so, there is about 12 miles worth of West 16th Street in Chicago and close-in suburbs.

Subletting is your best bet. You can either try subletting websites, Craigslist, or a safer version of Craigslist- Facebook Marketplace.

Subletting is great for summer rentals because a lot of college students are looking to sublet their apartment over the summer and you can often get a good deal. You also usually have the option of keeping their furniture so you wouldn't have to haul in all of your furniture for such a short time.

I've used both Craigslist and FB Marketplace for subletting and both experiences were positive. I felt a little safer with the latter because it's affiliated with Facebook so the listing is connected to the posters' Facebook profiles, allowing you to get a good idea of who you're subletting from.

Good luck =)
