Old Town

Cost of Living:   $ $ $ $ $

The Case For

  • Home of some of the best comedy in town at Second City and Zanie's.
  • North Avenue beach is a quick getaway.
  • The grocery world is your oyster! Choose between two Jewel's, a Whole Foods, a Plum Market or Trader Joe's.

The Case Against

  • Street parking after 5PM gets ...a bit tricky.
  • The most sought after parts of Old Town are further east, where transit options are few and far between.
  • Old Town is the size of a dinner plate, and everyone wants to live there.
