As a Humboldt Park resident of many years, I disagree with the poster who tells you to avoid it due to safety. First, Humboldt Park is technically one of the city's largest designated neighborhoods and incorporates a massive variety of everything, from organic seitan wrap litter to discarded flaming hot cheetos bags.

Your rent range is doable in all those neighborhoods although you will get a severely more dated place in the Bucktown area for that price.

In terms of safety, don't listen to anybody on here. Go take a walk down the streets that have apartments you are interested in. Then go back at night. Spend at least 30 minutes each time hanging out, eating cheetos, and noticing how you feel. If you feel comfortable, that's what you are looking for.

The Chicago Police Department has a thorough crime stat/location site but it sometimes confuses things more as you might notice pockets of Lincoln Park show more crime than Humboldt Park.
