    The "vibe" of each neighborhood. We are in our mid and late twenties and are looking for a safe yet fun and trendy neighborhood. A little diversity would be awesome too. Also, I love public transit so I'd like to be able to utilize that too!

    There is little to no diversity or culture in either of those neighborhoods. That's actually true for most of Chicago, except like, albany park. Both neighborhoods are as safe as any place in Chicago. I wouldn't call either of them trendy though. I think for trendy you'd look in Ukrainian village...but don't quote me on that. Trendy is not something I'm knowledgeable on. .

    Wrigleyville is a great place to be if you like baseball, bro-dudes, and partying. Lincoln Park is good if you like fancy shopping and brunch...and also bro-dudes. These are GROSS generalizations but I can't really think of a better way to describe it. If you want something a bit less...white bread, I'd look in bucktown/wicker park/Logan square/Ukrainian village. BUT Lincoln Park is a very good 'starter' neighborhood for Chicago. It's the first place I lived when I moved here. Really, exploring is the only way you will know what is right for you. And there are so many other factors...transportation, parking, etc. Take all of this with a grain of salt as I'm in my early 30s and have outgrown both of the neighborhoods you mention. If you have any other questions I'd be happy to answer them! I love people moving here

    I have a question.... Is 56,000 a decent salary to live on in Chicago? I'm moving there from NYC where I'm making 84,000! I expected a lower salary considering the lower cost of living but it still seems quite low. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the info. I agree, exploring is probably the best way but with so many neighborhoods available, I'd like to have a few narrowed down :-D Thanks!

    At 56 k your take home pay with claiming 0 dependents would still be around or close to say $3000 per month. I would hope you can live on that. Find affordable rent. Make a budget. For the first time in my life I have a subsatntial savings. I never started saving until I moved to Chicago. In New York I spent every penny and then some.
