I love living and working in Logan Square. There are so many amazing restaurants, parks, and fun things to do. It is a great neighborhood for young people and families. It is close to the expressway and its location and access to public transportation make it easy to get to other areas of the city. Logan Square is significantly more affordable than some of the surrounding neighborhoods like Bucktown and Wicker Park. It is an amazing place to live!

I absolutely love it! There are loads of public transportation options and fun things to do. Unfortunately, due to rising rents many of the restaurants at the roundabout between Kedzie, milwaukee and logan have recently shuttered and nothing has taken their place. They were always packed so a shortage of customers was not the problem. I would like to see these places open again.
Logan Square is a wonderful neighborhood to live in. You are surrounded by excellent public transportation and a wonderful mixture of multi-family and single-family homes. The square offers a farmers market during the summertime and free outdoor yoga every Sunday morning, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood as well as some great shopping spots on Milwaukee. One downside is the rising rent costs due to popularity and new apartment complexes popping up left and right. If you can find an affordable apartment, I think its a great place to live.
