  • headsup not available

    having bought and paid for my condo - I find in retirement my living expenses are way lower than rent - which allows me to retire "in style" Our building rents units like mine at about 3 times the cost I currently incur. Buying and eventually owning pays off in the long run.

    Not everyone (especially younger) can qualify for a mortgage, despite interest rates still being relatively low. And for a co-op--another form of apt. ownership--it can be tough to get approved by the co-op board. (Some condos also require board approval). But $1300 rent for a nice 1BR with those amenities is much lower than, say, Lincoln Park, S. Loop, River N. or W., Bucktown or Wicker Park--not to mention NY, L.A., SF, DC/No.VA, or Boston.

  • MSA

    That makes sense... although the idea of 'Suspicious Package' being a restaurant name is funnier. :)

  • Jerry Cargill Photographer, Teacher, Live on Milwaukee Ave.

    The Taste of Chicago. Where people from the suburbs can come pay $7 to try their first (mini) samosa.

    My older relatives say that when the Taste first started in 1979 or 80, the idea was you could come and pay like 25c or 50c each for a "taste" of a lot of different foods. That's why the portions are so small, though the prices have shot up over the years.
