I heart chi-town needs a life. New York crime-ridden? Let's do a little breakdown here, honey:

New York: 8 million people, 572 murders in 2004.
Chicago: 2.8 million people, 460 murders in 2004.

New York's murder rate: 6.9 per 100,000
Chicago's murder rate: 16.5 per 100,000

I've been to Chicago and there's no comparison to New York. Of course you think Chicago's safer, because you racists do a damn good job of hiding your poor and minorities. Outside of downtown, Chicago is indistinguishable from Detroit. There's an utter lack of quality culture compared to New York and the people are ignorant, arrogant, blue-collar Midwestern heifers. Half the people who I know from Chicago moved to New York and said it was the best thing they ever did. Only two of my friends from New York who moved to Chicago have deigned to say they like it.

So keep your segregation, your dirty lake, your even dirtier river, your autocratic mayor, your horrid public schools, your criminal police department, your high crime, and your damn Sears Tower. You are the second city and you always will be.

Wait, that's right. LA's the second city. That makes you THIRD.
If New York were shit-cago's (lack of capitalization intentional), size, it would have 193 murders a year.

If shit-cago were New York's size, it would have 1,400 murders a year.

Best damn city in the world!
Chicago rocks hard, yo!

Truly one of the greatest cities in the entire nation. With a total population exceeding 2.9 million inside the city limits alone, multiple cultures and ethnicities, cool-sounding urban, midwestern nasal accents (see ear candy), a rich history, tons of museums, theaters, arcades, the Brookfield Zoo; the best pizza outside of New York City, and probably one of the best city skylines in the United States, Chicago has something to offer to everyone. It is a higher standard of a metropolis that all other American cities strive to be like(and many of them have succeeded in that: see Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta, DC, Denver, Omaha, and Seattle.
Chicago is the ultimate economic, cultural, educational, business, entertainment, industrial, and population center of the Midwest.

One of the most, if not the most, beautiful cities in the US.
"Chicago is the Verona of America," (spoken with an Italian accent).

Big city with a beautiful skyline. Although geographically placed in the Midwestern state of Illinois, it should be considered it's own state since the rest of the midwest is filled with drunk redneck republicans.
"So your from Illinois?"
"No-I'm from Chicago"
