Besides downtown, Logan Square was my first introduction to Chicago. It's hard to argue against the abundance of lawn space on the boulevard that you don't see in many other Chicago neighborhoods. It's been two years since I began exploring the "square" and one year living in it. Often prefaced with "up and coming," it's exciting to see new restaurants and stores opening all the time and feeling a sense of ownership and pride; the community vibe is ever present here. Of course we're still lacking a few vitals (Trader's Joes, call us) and it's not immaculate but it has a lot of history and character and trees and I like that.
