Chicago epitomizes the modern, livable, vibrant, and diverse city. World-class amenities like the lakefront, arts and culture venues, festivals, and two international airports make Chicago a singularly enjoyable place to live.  Yet the cost of living, whether in an 88th floor condominium downtown or on a tree-lined street in one of the nation’s finest school districts, is remarkably affordable.
