The truest thing I heard when first moving to this city over a decade ago was that there was no one typical Chicago-style apartment - the housing stock is wildly varied. I live in a converted storefront, one very "Chicago" type of home found throughout the city, along with plentiful-in-Chicago lofts, two flats, coach houses and fantastic mid century highrises. I dug into our archives so we could tour homes of all of these styles, organized by type - enjoy!
