    Dear IL members,
    I am new to this forum and need your valuable suggestion for choosing a safe apartment in Chicago suburbs where we can have some Indian friends. We are from North Carolina, moving to chicago early Jan next year.

    My husband have offices in Riverwoods and Chicago Downtown, he may need to travel to both of them frequently. I am looking for a apartment community in Des plains area, so that we stay in middle of these 2 areas. Kindly suggest me some options.


    Thanks
    Sarika

    hi sneha,

    if u r concerned about indian population then 1.twin lakes and 2.fountains at stone crest are the 2 major apts here that has enough indian population. the former is a renovated one with little higher rent than the later. the later is non renovated. bus to train station comes in front of the 2 apts everyday. let me know if u need any further information.

    hi,

    the age of the kid might vary from apt to apt. but most of them ask u to go for only 2 bedroom. i think ours is 18 months and older for 2 bedroom (anyways not sure).

    Thanks for the info Shre.. Finally we are coming to see these 2 apts tomorrow and will finalize on one of them. We felt this place as a good choice after considering lots of factor, if not for u- we wouldnt have known this place. Will try to meet u when I finally move ( end of feb).
    Thanks again,
    Sneha.
