Getting Around Logan Square

Around Logan Square

Residents living near the eastern border, Broad Street, enjoy a short walk to the subway and great access to the rest of the city. Luxury townhomes on 17th Street offer the utmost level of comfort and design in a convenient location. Further west, homeowners like being close to the Schuylkill River waterfront and the greenspaces surrounding the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Stylish new constructions in this part of town are thoughtfully planned abodes with spaces for entertaining guests.

Newly constructed townhomes in this hot, downtown neighborhood will sell in the multimillion-dollar range. Condominium buildings offer midrange to affordable homes in the area, though buyers will have to factor in the monthly HOA fees.

Nearby Rittenhouse Square is more likely to catch the ear of Philly’s foodies, but Logan Square does have a few choice spots of its own. Sabrina’s Cafe is the local authority on brunch and whips up tasty New American meals for dinner as well. Elsewhere, popular chains like Chima Steakhouse are sure to satisfy your appetite.

Students, tourists, and locals frequent the area to visit renowned museums. In Logan Circle, locals relax at Swann Memorial Fountain, a sculpture of Native American figures and water-spouting animals symbolizing Philadelphia’s major streams. The skyscrapers on the southern edge of Logan Square rise above the neighborhood’s rowhouses and small businesses further north.

Grab a pint at City Tap House Logan or check out the view from 51 floors above Philly at Skygarten. For dinner and a show, head over to Time, a classy whiskey bar with live music and dancing. If you’re a fan of indie films, you’ve also got the Roxy Theater nearby. While nightlife in Logan Square is a bit more low-key than in other Center City neighborhoods, there’s no shortage of things to do nearby.

Start your day with a hearty meal at Sabrina’s Cafe, then head to the Franklin Institute to check out the Ben Franklin National Memorial or explore the cosmos at the planetarium. If you feel like spending time outdoors, head to Logan Circle to dip your toes in the fountain or ride your bike down the Schuylkill River Trail.

The BSL train is accessible from Broad Street at Spring Garden Street, Vine Street, and City Hall. Suburban Station provides rides to the airport, Trenton, and the suburbs. A trolley line follows Market Street at the southern border for shorter east-west trips. With SEPTA buses, taxis, and rideshares filling in the gaps, many residents prefer not to own a car as parking can be a challenge.
