Logan Square (Chicago), Illinois

Logan Square is of the 77 designated neighborhoods in Chicago, Illinois. It is on the North Side of Chicago. Its boundaries are the Milwaukee North Line Railroad on the west, the North Branch of the Chicago River on the east, Diversey Avenue on the north, and Bloomingdale Avenue on the south.

The area has many stately gray stone homes, large bungalows, as well as several broad picturesque boulevards. Logan Square is one of the less defined neighborhoods of Chicago and often overlaps with neighborhoods nearby such as Bucktown, Wicker Park and Avondale.

Logan Square is served by three stops on the CTA Blue Line: Western, California and Logan Square. All three stations provide 24/7 service to O’Hare International Airport, downtown Chicago, the west side, and the near west suburbs. The west side of Logan Square is served by the Metra train with a stop at West Fullerton Avenue.

Logan Square was named after Gen. John A. Logan, who served in the Civil War and later in Congress. The large public square at Milwaukee Avenue, Logan Boulevard and Kedzie Boulevard bears his name. At the center of the square is the Ilinois Centennial Monument, built in 1918 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Illinois statehood.

Like many other Chicago neighborhoods, Logan Square was a hub for immigrants new to the area. They were mostly German, Polish and Russian. Now most of its residents are of South American, Mexican and Cuban descent. It began as an area that many farmers fled to in the 1850s. Soon it also became a site for the newly built railroad and was home to the Maplewood station on Diversey Avenue.

After the 1930s Logan Square found itself in a slump and lost many of its residents to other neighborhoods around Chicago. But it began to rise again in the 1960s, with more Latino or Spanish-speaking immigrants and has been attracting many new residents, particularly artists. By the 1990s, two-thirds of Logan Square was made up of Latino immigrant families, including some of the largest Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Mexican communities in all of Chicago.

Logan Square is 3.23 square miles in area. Its population is 62,388. According to the 2010 U.S. census report, Logan Square is 50.74% Hispanic, 39.6% white, 5.3% black, 2.6% Asian and 1.7% other races. The median income is $30,120. Its average household size is 2.7 people. The median home value is $477,075. There are 18,353 renter-occupied housing units. The median monthly rent is $822.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
