The Logan Square community, one of 77 designated areas in Chicago, has a famous public square situated at the three-way intersection of Logan Boulevard, Milwaukee Avenue, and Kedzie Boulevard. Logan Square is known for prominent historical boulevards, spacious bungalow-style homes, and elegant greystones, which display a style of residence found most commonly in Chicago.
The community of Logan Square is, essentially, bordered by the North Branch of the Chicago River to the east, the Metra/Milwaukee District North Line railroad to the west, Bloomingdale Avenue to the south, and Diversey Parkway to the north.
With affordable homes for sale in Logan Square, as compared to other Chicago communities, Logan Square is home to many of the aspiring artists in Chicago. The biggest attractions for most who own Logan Square real estate are the outstanding park-like boulevards, which are widened thoroughfares divided by beautifully landscaped medians and regal trees on the sides. Four such boulevards are in Logan Square, and they link together as part of Chicago’s “Emerald Necklace,” an extensive coordination of interconnected streetscapes and parks scattered with stately greystone residences, resplendent churches, and stunningly restored mansions.
A genuine reflection of the cultural diversity of Chicago, Logan Square is home to several cultural centers, including Comfort Station at Logan Square., which features such cultural attractions as visual poetry, sacred harp singing, dance workshops, and much more. AnySquared Projects is also in Logan Park, and it’s impossible to miss, with its massive, ever-changing community mural.
Congress Theater, built in 1926 on N. Milwaukee Avenue, is one of Chicago’s historic movie palaces, but it hasn’t been in use since 2013. In early March 2019, the Chicago City Council approved a redevelopment agreement for the 3,500-capacity building that was designated as a Chicago landmark in 2002 and as a national landmark with the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2017.
Public transportation in Logan Square includes Metra rail, the Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA’s) “L” subway or bus, and other bus lines.
