"Local Artists Best Friend"

The area immediately northeast of downtown Minneapolis is known for being the hot spot for artists, and Logan Park fits the stereotype. The neighborhood is filled with studio and apartment spaces dating back to the 1930's and vacant warehouses makes suitable spots for creating masterpieces. The railroad tracks run straight through the community making Logan Park a divide of the residential and the industrial. On both sides of the tracks are artist studios, galleries and businesses that display the work of hundreds of local aesthetic geniuses.

Logan Park of course engulfs a local green public space that goes by the same name, which basically serves as the only form of nature access within the neighborhood that is all shingles and concrete. Central Ave. NE offers various dining spots for starving artists to keep themselves from starving with local favorites like the Marrakech Cafe. The real estate here is very affordable, catering to both renters and home owners. Rent most often does not exceed $600 while buyers pay off a mortgages that are around $160,000. Though families are constantly encouraged to jump ship here, the vast majority of residents are young single artists that love having the community full of people like themselves.

"Artists Haven"

Logan Park is a mix of residential and industrial areas, situated in the northeast portion of Minneapolis. The neighborhood was originally built around Logan Park, a square dedicated to a Civil War general named Logan.
One of the drawbacks to the Logan Park neighborhood are the railroad tracks that practically divide the community into two, separating the residential side from the industrial side. Residents are working to make their community have more visual appeal and encourage new families to move to the neighborhood. The homes in this area are mainly Victorian style or those of the architecture of the 1930s. There are some low-rise rental units to be found within the community as well.
One of the attractions to the Logan Park neighborhood is the Art District, where almost 200 artists and small businesses live and work. There are various buildings dedicated for studio purposes, drawing artists of all mediums to find their creative spirits in this neighborhood.
While there are no schools within this neighborhood, Logan Park does offer a great place for individuals and families to relax or play a game of ball. There is also a wading pool and walking path, picnic areas, and an outdoor ice rink.

  • great for the arts
Cons
  • railroad tracks dividing neighborhood
