Great place with great: public transit, food, people, weather, police force, roads, community, schools, suburbs, sports teams, chicks, dudes, etc.
The city is commonly percieved as spread out between racial groups, but that's not really true...True, there are some sides of the city more ghetto than others but really its a pretty equal place all around, other than what I just mentioned.
It's better than NYC because people are nicer, food is better and the traffic is lighter, and it's not so much a "designer city" like NYC, if you know what I mean...No other city comes close.
Food suggestions from a Native:
pizza - Lou Malnati's, the original Uno's, *Edwardo's
hot dogs - **U Dawg U, Superdawg, Portillo's
(*in suburb of Skokie
** in suburb of Niles)
I live in Washington DC but Chicago will always be my hometown.

The food in Chicago is better than the food in New York City.
The traffic in Chicago is better than the traffic in LA.
The police in Chicago is better than the police in Washington DC. And also the subway and bus setup.
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 skyline
s 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
, 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"
