Everytime I pass the Congress, I wondered if it would ever be restored to its former glory. It would be great to see a vertical neon sign and a lit marquee. It’s still being used as a music venue. It’s located on the southern end of Logan Square, just before the Western stop on the Blue Line. Change had started to come there as well in the last 10-15 years. Some say it’s like Wicker Park was in the nineties–but I disagree. The change is different in Logan Square.
