I was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions for the best area to get an apartment, places that don't rip you off, somewhat safe (and reasonable), etc.

please & thank you :)

I don't know of any specific places.. but I do know that when hunting for apartments, I have always used the following three sites to guide me:

yelp.com - you will get reviews of the various management companies by people who have lived in their buildings

craigslist - loads of apt listings

everyblock.com - break down, block by block, of what is going on in whichever neighborhood you are considering (crime, businesses opening/closing, real estate transactions)

yeah to add to the top, i consulted this map: http://chicagogangs.org/index.php?pr=GANG_MAP_NORTH
to look at places to NOT live by.
