Logan Square’s personality defies a single definition. Corporate and municipal office buildings cover swaths of wide streets, creating the bustle of daily commerce. Luxury high-rises and modern and historic houses line leafy side streets.
The museums that border the broad, tree-lined Benjamin Franklin Parkway add yet another dimension.
Green spaces — including the square that gives the area its name, provide spots for relaxation, reflection and fun.
Logan Square, which sits between Broad Street on the east, the Schuylkill River on the west, Market Street on the south and Spring Garden Street on the north, is home to several iconic Philadelphia attractions.

The center of the city government’s daily business, City Hall is a natural focal point. Its elaborate architecture and ornamentation make people stop and take notice —and photos. The architectural equivalent of a wedding cake, the sprawling building is adorned with carvings of allegorical figures and is capped off with a massive statue of William Penn, all designed by Alexander Milne Calder.
