Thanks, folks! I have been working through the ones on Air B and B, but the ones I can actually afford that are in the right areas are either shared bathroom (that's the ONLY thing I'm particular about) or in what look to be sketchy neighborhoods that are a fairly long walk from transportation. (A problem since I'm alone and not as young as I once was...) I have found a couple of perfect ones, but they're already rented for my time frame. I'm sure this will be my best option; just hoping for some suggestions since I know NOTHING about Chicago and where the bus/train stops are. Again, THANKS!!
