Best damn city in the U.S. People here are not racist, ignorant, or uneducated. Some of the best high schools in the country are here. People are nice. If you need help with anything you can ask a complete stranger and he'll help you. The fat pigs are over in Wisconsin, although there are some here. Its safe as long as you don't go into the south side, even though there are nice parts down south. Weather sucks in the winter, but get over it and wear a jacket. Only negatives are crime and corruption, but every big city has those. Those who call it Shit-Cago are fags who wouldn't recognize a good city if it was a man who sucked their dick.
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.
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.
one kickass town, home of the sears tower, hancock building, the navy pier, kapone, some kickass rappers like twista. If you can't hang here, don't bother trying. I live in the 'burbs though, but i've been therre plenty of times.
