Famous for its historical, wide boulevards lined with mature trees, Logan Square is undoubtedly one of Chicago's most picturesque neighborhoods. The neighborhood takes its name from the public square at the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue, Kedzie Boulevard, and Logan Boulevard, but there is much more to be seen in the area than its namesake. Directly west of Bucktown and northwest of Wicker Park, Logan Square is quickly becoming one of Chicago’s most hip neighborhoods, with fun and fresh businesses seeming to crop up everywhere you turn. For some time now, there has been a strong appeal to living here for young independents, and now that appeal is extending to Chicago families as well.
Found throughout the neighborhood are many restaurants, boutiques, bars, and coffee shops that have recently rejuvenated the area. One of these popular hangouts is Revolution Brewing’s brewpub, located on Milwaukee Avenue. Since its opening in 2010, the brewpub has given fans of the Chicago brewery a place to pair a great meal with their favorite beers, straight from their source. Up the road a ways lies the Logan Square Farmers Market, where Chicagoans purchase supreme produce, eat unique freshly made snacks and meals, and enjoy the live music performed in the market. The market moves indoors for the winter months, so it can be experienced year round.
When it comes to transportation, being located just west of the Kennedy Expressway, Logan Square is an ideal location for those who commute into the suburbs. However, for those who work in the city, the neighborhood is also widely accessible via public transportation. Logan Square has stops on the Blue Line and several bus routes, meaning residents rarely find themselves wishing they owned a car.
The housing options available in Logan Square have a wide range, including everything from gorgeous mansions to affordable two/three-flat brownstones and economy apartment complexes. Below is a table showing the price ranges of affordable apartments in Logan Square.
|$700 - $900||$850 - $1000||$1100 - $1800||$1200 - $2000|
