One day a few months ago, I was wanting to go for a walk, but wanting to go somewhere new. I used to do these “neighborhood walks” and post photos on this site, but haven’t done it forever. So, I decided that maybe over the course of this summer I will try to walk Logan Square. When you look up Logan Square boundaries, people have varying opinions. For this exercise, I’m going to go with these boundaries for the neighborhood: Diversey to the north, Western to the east, Armitage to the south and Pulaski to the West. However you classify it, the neighborhood is HUGE. So, I think if I do this I’ll have to break it up into a bunch of chunks. As the summer has progressed I haven’t done a great job keeping up on this project, but I’ll keep trying. Here are my photos from my walk on California Avenue from Armitage to Diversey.
Los Arista Food & Liquors
A strip mall in Logan Square. The Papa John’s is new this year.
This place is going to be Masada’s (Middle Eastern). It’s been under construction since we moved to Logan Square, but seems to actually be making progress now. I like the look.
Boiler Room. Been here for many slices.
It was Mothers Day, so there were vendors out trying to sell flowers and stuffed animals and stuff.
More Mothers Day stuff for sale.
And they say all the new condos look the same…
Mops Beauty Shop (Dallas and I, along with several other friends, have been going here for years!)
Used to be a drive-thru, now someone’s home?
Gosu, Korean/Japanese restaurant we’ve been meaning to try
This Starbucks has an awesome outdoor patio.
Flowering trees on Logan Boulevard
Again with the older houses that are all exactly the same.
Need a mattress or futon?
