Which Neighborhoods Have the Best Studio Apartments?

Studios are wonderful for singles. The open layout gives any apartment a laid-back and artistic vibe, and it's also convenient for new residents. Living in a studio feels more casual, and this will give you the chance to test-drive a city before making any long-term commitments. Here are a few neighborhoods teeming with studios:

Crawford and Oakton: This is the most central neighborhood in Skokie, and it's close to numerous restaurants and bars. This is also where you'll find several well-priced studios, which average around $1,000 a month.

Gross Point** Road:** While this neighborhood is fairly far from the center of town, it's close to Harms Woods, Chick Evans Golf Course and Westmoreland Country Club. The area around Gross Point Road is marked by several expansive apartment complexes, many of which feature luxe studio apartments. However, living near Gross Point Road isn't cheap. Expect to spend at least $1,500 a month for a studio here.

Howard Street: The area surrounding Howard Street is close to neighboring Lincolnwood, as well as several grocery stores and shopping centers. It's also more walkable and accessible by public transit than most neighborhoods in Skokie. There's even a stop on the CTA Yellow Line that'll take you directly to Chicago. You'll find several available studio apartments here, but be aware that they can cost over $6,000. While this sounds expensive, imagine having a studio that's almost 7,000 square feet. That'll give you ample room to roam!
