I've accepted a job at a trading firm in Chicago-
I'm looking at housing and would like to know your guys' input.
I have two choices-
I can live in a 4 bedroom-3 bathroom apartment (roommates are taken care of by the apartment complex) that's a mile away from the firm.
I can bike there within 10-15 minutes. How doable is this in the Chicago winter? Should I just uber when the weather gets brutal? This would cost about 960 in rent a month (I would get a private bathroom)
The firm isn't formal so I can go in wearing anything I like.
Or do I go for a 1400-1500 a month flat that's a 5 minute (.2 mile) walk away from the firm?
I'll probably have no social life for the first year or two so prestige/flaunting anything isn't a concern
(I won't have anything to flaunt, haha)
