DISCOVER LOGAN SQUARE

Logan square - The hidden gem of chicago?

Easy to reach with the blue line, the Logan Square neighborhood is home to a diverse population including Latinos, Poles, and African-Americans. While housing prices in nearby Wicker Park are rising more and more artists moved to Logan Square shaping it to an increasingly hip area.

 

There is a lot to see in Logan Square and the neighborhood is developing a lot at the moment so there are many reasons to visit again and again. In the following, I present some of my favorite places to shop and enjoy some cultural inspiration.

One of the most stylish flower shops in Chicago. Great selection of creative arrangements and unusual blooms. Very inspiring decor and a great place to get some gifts or to bring some nature into your own living room.

Hairpin arts center


Logan Square is much more than nice boutique shops. The neighborhood is changing drastically and the journey along the way is well reflected in some art which you can find in the Hairpin Arts Center. The entrance is free. The last time I have been at Hairpin Arts Center most art pieces reflected the fight with the local police system and the dream of justice. I can really recommend stopping by.
