Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
La Salle University, a large wooded area, and several high schools are located on the west side of the neighborhood. Trains are fairly accessible from anywhere in the area, except perhaps in Ogontz/Belfield to the northwest. Most of the area’s grocery stores are along Broad Street.
Prices of the older row houses in Logan are exceptionally low. If you’re seeking to buy ahead of a rehab, you'll likely beat your budget. You’ll pay a bit more for properties that have already been renovated, but even these are quite affordable compared to neighborhoods nearer to Center City. You can also find houses with traditional exteriors and bay windows. They'll have open floor plans but no contemporary amenities. These work for larger families, as you’ll get a lot of square footage for the price.
Where to Eat
While the neighborhood doesn’t have a lot of dining options, there are some great local spots spaced out along Broad Street. Soul food, seafood, and international cuisine are on the menu in Logan. Ron’s Caribbean Cafe is an unpretentious joint serving delicious Jamaican fare in large portions. For tasty seafood on the go, see Sid Booker, “The Colonel of Shrimp,” at his Shrimp Corner on Broad and Belfield.
What You'll See
Drop into any given block of this largely residential neighborhood and you’ll likely find an outline of nearly identical rowhouses overlooking lush greenery. Parks, churches, schools, and colleges are dispersed throughout the neighborhood. You won’t find Philly’s biggest attractions in this part of town, but you will find a friendly community and a pleasant environment to put down roots in.
Friday Night Fun
On either side of Broad Street, you’ll find clubs, late-night lounges, and karaoke spots for a night out with friends. Many of the neighborhood’s restaurants are open late as well, if you’ve got the munchies after a dance party.
The Perfect Sunday
Pop over to North Broad Street for some Sunday brunch. Boutique-style breakfast, comfort foods, and small plates await. Do your grocery shopping at an affordable supermarket chain on Broad Street. To relax, head over to Kemble Park on Ogontz Avenue. Enjoy the greenspaces, playground, and basketball courts.
Getting around is easy with the BSL subway running through the center of the neighborhood, and SEPTA buses traverse major thoroughfares. Fern Rock Transportation Center is located on the northeastern border, providing access to several more train lines. With retailers and amenities so spread out, Logan doesn’t have great walkability, but transit is easy to use, and driving isn’t as difficult as in other neighborhoods.
