Resident · 2012 - 2013
For the money, you can't beat these apartments. Significantly cheaper rent than anywhere else in Rogers Park. It's an old building but they keep the apartments nicely maintained. Perfect for mature Loyola and Northwestern students (be willing to be respectful about noise; this is a family building with many older residents). Every other tenant I ever met in this building was incredibly sweet. Neighbors say hello, help you carry your groceries/ move in your furniture (there is no elevator). Lunt is an adorable street with a beautiful beach, which does make parking on the weekends in the summertime a nightmare. If you find a space on Friday-- DON'T MOVE. Otherwise, permit-free on-street parking, with a paid parking at the end of the street(free from 7pm to 9am). Never had trouble finding parking when it wasn't beach weather. There's a coffee shop on the corner with a friendly staff (overpriced food and coffee though....). Short walk to grocery store, sweet and cheap movie theater, restaurants (best falafel place in the city!), bars (The Glenwood and its bartenders are the sweetest), Glenwood Farmers Market in the summer; longer but doable walk to Northwestern shuttle stop (for students), Loyola University, Edgewater and all its cute bakeries and flower shops; short drive to Andersonville for brunch. Red Line Morse stop is less than two blocks away, bus stop is right on the corner. This neighborhood can be a bit unsafe late at night, though I never felt unsafe on Lunt (I was a graduate student and often came home late). Stay alert and you'll be fine!
