Hip, trendy, and yet somehow still sensible, Logan Square has long been one of Chicago's favorite neighborhoods. The area developed in the early 1800s, when a public green space was designed by Jens Jensen, a landscape architect. Today, Logan Square Park is located in the heart of the neighborhood, wrapped by Logan Boulevard and divided by Milwaukee Avenue.
Bicycle-friendly Logan Square is all about living local, from its restaurants that use only locally-farmed produce to local craft breweries to local artists in galleries. With its wide sidewalks and compact design, Logan Square is very walkable. If you choose a Logan Square apartment, you'll be about five miles from Downtown Chicago, with easy access to mass transit -- just hop on the L's Blue Line from the Logan Square Blue Line Station and you'll be downtown in minutes.
