Q: My former roommate just dropped a bombshell on me a day before we were to sign the lease at our new apartment: his girlfriend had convinced him to sign a 1 bedroom lease across the street from her place. Now I'm left with just 8 days to find a 1 bedroom/studio in Chicago, all while working a full time job in the Loop.

I'm writing in hopes that some of your loyal readers had been on a similar search recently, and perhaps found a hidden gem that for whatever reason, they had to pass on. Aside from being Apartment Therapy approved, my only other "must haves" are that it should be around $800 a month and close to the Brown line for work purposes.
