The cheapest and most expensive rentals in Logan Square

Compare two extremes of the Northwest Side rental market: a luxurious 4,000-square-foot house and a tiny studio

There's no doubt gentrification has a firm grasp on Logan Square, but there's still quite a disparity between the haves and the have-nots. Plentiful dirt-cheap apartments in Logan are pretty much a thing of the past. But if you crap money, there is no shortage of pricey rentals in the neighborhood to choose from. These two examples of Logan's most expensive and cheapest rentals, provided by real estate site Zumper, illustrate that gap quite nicely.

1856 N Fairfield Ave

4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms for $5,500/month

First up, we have a 4,000-square-foot house near the Western Blue Line stop for $5,500/month. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home is pretty incredible, despite the ancient-Rome-meets-Liberace kitchen. The enormous roofdeck is the stuff of house party dreams.

W Schubert Ave #1T

Studio, $850/month

And then we have this $850/month studio on Schubert and Milwaukee, near the Logan Square Blue Line stop. Great location and, for a studio, this isn't bad at all. But $850 for a kitchen with a just a sliver of counter space? You can thank Logan's hip restaurants and bars for that.

Ugh. Lame City!  There is no way I'd pay $850 for that studio. $500 tops. Which is why three years ago, after living in Logan for 12 years, I moved to Irving Park.

That isn't the cheapest in Logan Square, unless it's limited to facing right onto the actual square, staring across the street to Dunlay's
