I am planning to move to Chicago after New Years and am in need of some short term housing. (I've tried to find a discussion thats already been posted for this, but have had no such luck. Forgive me if they are 2354 previous posts answering this question.)

I will be moving to Chicago permanently, but thought it'd be a good idea to stay somewhere for a month or two, before I commit to a year's lease, etc. I am 25 and do not have a car, nor do I ever want to have a car. I know there are short term furnished apartments online, but they tend to be a bit expensive. Perhaps there is some secret, short term, affordable housing in a safe(er) neighborhood near public transportation that I am not aware of???

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

The first one that comes to mind is The Oakwood Apartments which is located just a little bit north of downtown (River North, I think?). I knew someone who lived here and just loved it! It might be a little bit pricey, but is in a great location and is a nice, safe building. Here is the website: www.oakwoodchicago.com (http://www.oakwoodchicago.com - broken link).
