Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

And now the latest from Curbed Chicago, covering everything you need to know about the city's neighborhoods and real estate...

EVERYWHERE— Yesterday we sampled some weird, disarming, and/or disturbing rent-oriented craigslist posts. People will do anything. You may want to double check to see if yours is there.

LINCOLN PARK— Curbed seeks to answer that burning question: Where might I rent an apartment with a private rooftop suitable for yoga instruction or bocce tournaments? We found a mighty plausible candidate.

EVERYWHERE— Our Outlandish Amenity Du Jour is tennis courts. Check out a brief profile of three amenity-rich tennis court rental buildings with surprising affordability, and never fight for a lakefront court again.

LOGAN SQUARE— Serving up some availabilities at the $1,500/mo price point, Curbed gives a plug to swinging Logan. There's a fancy one-bedroom duplex and a few large 2-beds, all close to the Blue Line and the burgeoning food & drink scene.
