"It started as a suburban neighborhood and then things changed"

The neighborhood of Logan should not be confused with Logan Circle. They are totally two different neighborhoods. The North Philadelphia section known as Logan is an African American community that has seen considerable decline over the years. At the time of its development it was considered an early suburban community but as Philadelphia expanded Logan became urban.

The single family row homes that make up this neighborhood are almost identical from each other though many are showing signs of neglect as many residents have moved away from Logan. The number of empty houses has increased steadily over the last few years and their abandonment is showing.

Another often too common issue occurring in Logan is crime. There have been increasing reports of theft and assault occurring in the neighborhood with more incidents making headlines steadily. Obviously this doesn’t bode well for the reputation of a neighborhood that has seen so many plights in its history.

One plus to Logan is that the property value is pretty low and it’s close to public transportation. So if you want to buy a house and you don’t want to drive to other parts of the city, this neighborhood can help you with both.
Pros
  • inexpensive
  • near public transit
Cons
  • crime
  • many empty, neglected houses
Recommended for
  • Singles
  • Families with kids
