About Logan Square
Named for the public square at its heart, Logan Square is located north of Humboldt Park and west of Bucktown on Chicago's Northwest Side. While the community has long been home to a diverse ethnic, working-class population, Logan Square has been discovered in recent years by an influx of artists, students, professionals and families attracted to the area's bohemian lifestyle, relatively affordable housing, and easy access to the Loop via the CTA Blue Line.
Logan Square is characterized by tree-lined boulevards and large bungalow-style homes, and also boasts elaborate mansions along historic Logan and Kedzie Boulevards. However, the recent influx of buyers to the area has triggered a boom of residential development, including condominiums, lofts, town homes, three-flats and single-family homes at a variety of price points.
While Logan Square is surrounded by some of Chicago's trendiest areas for nightlife, including Bucktown and Wicker Park, the area has its own low-key entertainment district featuring locally owned restaurants, bars and bistros. The work of the many artists and musicians who live in Logan Square can be sampled at local coffee shops, lounges, cafes and theatres that help fuel the community's artistic vibe.
