Logan Square (60614, 60618, 60622, 60639, 60647 zip codes) is a historical neighborhood area located on the North-West side of Chicago with its center (carrying the same name) at the intersection of 3 streets – of Milwaukee Avenue, Logan Boulevard and Kedzie Boulevard.
It was developed in the 1830s around the areas (towns at that time) of “Jefferson”, “Maplewood,” and “Avondale’, and renamed Logan Square (after General John A. Logan, an American soldier and political leader) / annexed into the City of Chicago in 1889. The majority of its first residents were English speaking or arrived from Scandinavia (Norwegians and Danes). There were also numerous immigrants from Poland and substantial Jewish community.
The West border of the Logan Square neighborhood runs along the Metra/Milwaukee District North Line railroad, the North Branch of the Chicago River forms the East border, the Diversey Parkway is the Logan Square’s North boundary, and the Bloomingdale Trail (the 606 / an elevated greenway) defines its South border.
Today, the Logan Square neighborhood is much more diversified, and includes Latinos from Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Cuba, large Polish population, and African-Americans.
The Logan Square neighborhood architecture is dominated by majestic greystones and impressive bungalow-style residential homes built along beautiful historical park-like boulevards. Due to a number of masonry buildings that always require some tuckpointing work, it is one of our favorite neighborhoods to work at.
There are a few sub-neighborhoods within the Logan Square neighborhood:
- Belmont Gardens – the most industrial portion of the Logan Square.
- Bucktown – that has a mix of older single-family homes, new structures with stimulating architecture, as well industrial building converted into loft spaces.
- Kosciuszko Park,by the intersection of Diversey and Pulaski, with its spacious green spaces.
- Palmer Square filled with shops, coffee houses, bars, and restaurants.
