    Lincoln Park, River North, Rogers Park near Morse/Jarvis in the city and suburbs Oak Park if you wish to be closer to the city. They can also be on the pricey side so it’s best to do research as to what you can afford in rent or a mortgage.

    Depending on what you are willing to spend it differs. Northbrook (suburb) is a good place to live but it’s very pricey. Lincoln Park in Chicago is also good but again it is expensive.

    According to city-data.com the crime rates for Chicago and Indianapolis are virtually the same and for cost of living Chicago is 108.1 and indianapolis is 88.8. Most of the difference in C of L is because of the cost of housing. Sales tax in Indiana are 7.0%, income tax is 3.4 %. Property tax varies by jurisdiction. Because the cost of housing is the largest factor contributing to the C of L, in a huge metropolitan area such as Chicago the C of L can vary greatly depending on the cost of housing. You probably are not aware of this because of your age, but as a trend, the crime rate in the City of Chicago has been decreasing for the last 20 years. Also keep in mind areas with lower cost of living, generally also have lower wages. The thing about criminal political corruption as opposed to violent crimes and property crimes is, if someone was not caught, tried and convicted you probably would not know the crime had occurred.
