About this listing
The apartment is spacious and bright with lots of windows, high ceilings and artistic vibe. A block from the park, the apartment is steps away from popular bars, restaurants, and neighborhoods of Wicker Park and Logan Square. 30-35 mins to downtown.
-Your room is a medium size, with an AC unit in summer--good for one to two people.
-There is one other room in the apartment that is usually also rented.
-Please note that this is an older apartment. It has a few quirks, like creaky spots on the floor, and in the winter the radiator heaters make some noise. The bathroom is cleaned very regularly, but there are signs of an old apartment. The place is taken care of and loved. *if you expect hotel setting, this is not the place for you!*
Come and go as you please
Interaction with guests
I am available to help you/answer questions about Chicago if you like.
There are popular bars and restaurants close by, including the California Clipper. 15-minute's walk away is Chicago's new 606 Trail, great for walking, cycling, running. Don't forget the park--she's big and lovely, and a block away.
Park on Thomas, Cortez, or Sacramento/Humboldt. DO NOT park on Mozart unless you have read the street parking allowance signs.
Getting downtown is easy, 30 minute journey give or take.
Blue Line (California, Western, Damen, or Division stops, all 25 minute walk away, or a 7 minute bus ride)
Several bicycle rental stations located within a few blocks radius.
Other things to note
There is a cat--she is sweet as pie, quite talkative, and deaf.
I am an artist and have a studio in the apartment (a third bedroom), it's usual to find me working in there--often I sleep there.
No smoking inside
Everyone does their own dishes
If you use a lot of smell-ing products like hairspray, please open a window--same goes for if you burn things while cooking, etc
I'm an actor and artist in my late twenties, originally from Northern California and born in England. I paint, play piano, enjoy people and laughing, watching weirdos like louis ck, and working on DIY theater projects. I keep my space clean, and love making it more flow-y and comfortable whenever I can--come check it out, and enjoy ;)
