Neighborhood Coverage Boundaries
Though we love our neighboring communities of Humboldt Park, Avondale, Hermosa and Wicker Park, we focus heavily on Logan Square. However, in some cases we will cover issues just outside our boundaries as they affect the neighborhood and our readers.
We define the Logan Square neighborhood as in general, bounded by:
- Northside: Diversey Avenue
- Southside: Bloomingdale Avenue
- Eastside: the North Branch of the Chicago River
- Westside: the Metra/Milwaukee District North Line railroad
LoganSquarist was created as a Twitter account in 2011 by Logan Square resident Kate Hamilton looking to connect the neighborhood. Since then, LoganSquarist has grown into a community across multiple web and social sites that is supported by a talented staff of volunteers. In July 2013, we incorporated as a Limited Liability Company. Over the years, we’ve received a variety of press mentions.
