Runaway Prices
Photograph by Nina Berman 

A jogger makes her way past prime real estate. Two-bedroom condos in a new North Sheffield complex—its back to the "L"—will start at U.S. $350,000. "The L is part of living in Chicago, and real estate is priced according to how close it is," says Jody Williams of Jameson Realty Group. But some Chicagoans like a little breathing room and will fork over extra to get it. "You might pay 10 to 15 percent more to be on the far side of the street from the train," she says.
