Logan Square and Wicker Park are considered two of Chicago’s coolest neighborhoods — but which one is right for you? The Luxury Living Chicago Realty team is here to help you understand the differences between these two Chicago hipster neighborhoods so that you can make the choice that’s best for you.

Wicker Park

Situated west of the Kennedy Expressway, east of Humboldt Park, and south of the Bloomingdale Trail, this popular neighborhood offers an excellent spot to live.

With a high concentration of restaurants, bars and boutiques near and along North Milwaukee Avenue, there is never a lack of things to do in Wicker Park.

While many young professionals reside in the area, Wicker Park is also considered a very family-oriented spot, offering everything from single-family homes to brand new apartments.

Excellent public transit makes commuting in and out of the area reasonably easy. Wicker Park is also ranked as the fourth most walkable neighborhood in Chicago.

Logan Square

The charming Logan Square neighborhood is known for its regal Greystone buildings and old trees that line the neighborhood’s grassy boulevards.

While Logan Square shares many similarities with Wicker Park, this neighborhood has a reputation for being more up-and-coming. Home prices are relatively lower than those in Wicker. However, they are on the rise as more people want to make the move to this booming neighborhood.

This neighborhood attracts plenty of young and diverse people looking for a hip spot to call home.

When looking at a map, you’ll notice that Logan Square is just Northwest of Wicker Park. Although this puts the neighborhood a bit further from the city, it still provides excellent access to downtown through the blue line.

Units to Consider

Regardless of which of these Chicago hipster neighborhoods is right for you, both areas offer great living options.

If Wicker Park aligns best with your lifestyle, consider checking out Wicker Park Connection, located at 1640 W Division Street. These sleek new apartments offer premier living on the southeast corner of Wicker Park, near multiple schools and other neighborhood joints. Choose from a one-bedroom or studio apartment.
