Hello all,

I currently live in Mokena, but it is past the time for me to leave the proverbial nest, and my job is moving from Orland Park to New Lenox, so I am considering trying to get an apartment there.

Despite growing up very close to NL, I am not very familiar with the town except for the area along Lincoln Highway, and I have no idea where to start looking.

Any idea where I should start? I am looking for a 1 bedroom and would prefer to be in a smaller unit building rather than a big complex, but I'm not super picky.

In addition, does anyone know approximately what a 1 bedroom in NL would run?

Thank you in advance for any help!

I don't know if there are any condo/townhouses for rent. But the ones that I have been in are off of Illinois hwy, around circle dr.
Country creek may be quite a bit cheaper, but they are a medium size apartment complex, I don't know if they have any one bedrooms. The only other apartments I know of, in new Lenox, are on haven and rt30. Sort of across from the train station and fire
Station. I have never been in those.
You may have better luck finding a reasonable 1bdrm in manhattan. Good Luck!

Thank you secret id!- I will take a look at the areas you mentioned.

Just to clarify, I probably cannot afford a condo/townhouse rental, but I know that some places have smaller buildings (6 units or so) that generally just place signs out front when there are units. But now that I think about it, they are probably 2 bedrooms or more.

There are some one level units for rent behind the post office at Rt 30 and Vine, and a smaller complex across the street from there.

I'd stay away from the Country Creek Apartments if I were you. I'd look into the ones by the NL Post Office.

There are some on Towncrest in New Lenox just off Cedar across from Ranch Frostie. They tend not to advertise in the papers, but put signs out in the yards so you will have to take a drive over there. They were $725 and that was 10 years ago so I have no idea what they would be now. The ones by the post office are small, but they seem to take care of them at least from the outside. Country Creek is full of problems so I would stay away from there. I would also try to stay away from the ones on Cooper off Rt. 30. They were bad news 20 years ago. Can't imagine what they are like now. Oh and there are apartments above the dentist on Cedar Road. The downstairs is Dr. Hutton's office and the upstairs is apartments.

This may be a silly question, but where exactly is Country Creek? Looking at a map of New Lenox I can see Country Creek Dr, but it mostly looks like an industrial area.

Also, are there apartments off of Laraway near Nelson Rd? I looks like it from google maps, but it could be condos? If so, are they okay?
