A large monster that can swallow up any tourist to empty their pocket books. An amazingly simple city to get around in. Tagger Heaven. Home of the White Sox, Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls and the Cubs. A place where hipsters gather on North Avenue and the hood isn't distinguished from block to block. Good place to live. People from Illinois that are from Chicago, say they're from Chicago FIRST AND FOREMOST.
Also has a distinct accent and lingo.

Tim: "You mean Illinois?"
Amy: "NO. I mean CHICAGO."
