Last week, we showed you the rental disparities in hipper-than-thou 'hood Logan Square. This week, we turn our attention to what Logan Square will probably look like in 10 years, Wicker Park. While you can still find cheap places to live in Logan, it says a lot about how the neighborhood has changed that one of the cheapest apartments real estate site Zumper could find in Wicker Park is $1,500/month. Plenty of apartments on the ridic-expensive end, though, and this one is just gorgeous.

You kind of have to love the clean lines of modern design, as I do, to dig this minimalist space. But anyone would love the two-story windows that let in so much light, and the view of the old water tower. Tres urban. The kitchen makes me weep a little bit, just looking at it. Plus, three balconies and a roof deck with a fireplace. What! That's why this place is a whopping $4,500/month.

This charming, loft-like one-bedroom reminds me of the places Wicker Park had for rent in the early '90s when my brother lived across the street from what is now Piece (back then, North Avenue was more than a little sketch). The walls are painted haphazardly, as if a bohemian artist started the job but then genius struck and he had to stop immediately to fashion a cat out of copper wire or whatever.
