Greatest place in the Midwest. A place where the street gangs are actually home grown unlike New York. No Bloods and Crips here, just Peoples and Folks. There are three sides, North, South, and West. The South Side is divided into Southwest and Southeast depending on the Dan Ryan Expressway. The North Side gets a rep for pussy ass white yuppies. The South Side and West Side is the real city aside from fancy skyscrapers you hear about. Chicago is a place dick ridden by people from Milwaukee, Indiana, Detroit, and most of all downstate. True capital of Illinois, home to the Sears Tower and birthplace of skyscrapers and the tallest buildings in the world.
People in Detroit don't like Chicago, because we actually have something to appeal to tourist. Many wannabe Chicago's in the Midwest, but there's only one.
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.
