How come logan square doesn't have more going on? It's near suburban / 30th and already has many towers in it. It's one of the few areas that is realistic to work in NYC from. It's near Rittenhouse, the parkway, and can easily get on the highways... As far as connectivity and nearby amenities goes it's prime real estate. At the moment it just seems like a great place to get enough sqft for a family, be quiet enough for "safety" and well connected enough for work.

Check a newspaper and see what's going on there this weekend. It's called Made in America and is just one of many events that draw huge crowds to that area through out the year.

It's a nice area, but always struck me as kind of cut off by the Parkway to the north and the Market/JFK office canyons to the south. At night, it's a lonely, desolate walk to get to more active areas.

Yep... so true. I live on the Parkway and boy is it dead at night... my fiancee has been begging me to move when our lease is up so we can step out of our apartment into a less expansive, cozier, and busier section of the city. Walking the Parkway in the winter is not the most fun.

Speaking of made in America the main stage is free south of it.

Thanks anyway but I wouldn't be caught dead there (I am 63 years old and not in the best of health)
I just wanted to make the point that Logan Circle hosts more people and events than all the other squares combined including Rittenhouse
