Logan Square Firefighter's Memorial

Logan Square has a small Firefighter's Memorial Park at the intersection of Diversey, Milwaukee, and Kimball. (Milwaukee is one of a few angle streets in Chicago that create six corner intersections where they cut through the "normal" grid pattern of streets.) It is dedicated to three firemen who were killed battling a fire in February, 1985. The centerpiece of the park is a large, colorful mural depicting three firefighters as angels.
