An overrated rat hole of a city in the Midwest U.S., with buildings as overbearing as the people, annoying traffic jams, mediocre food, and a "same shit different block" nightlife. Terrible schools. Over-glorified sports teams. BAD SMELLS around town. Lots of racial tension due to the urban rednecks who inhabit 80% of the city. Lot's of crime all around town. Corrupt politicians, still to this day. A decent looking city wasted on fat pompous asses and wannabe toughguys, like most of those knobs who wrote the previous definitions.
Chicago is the New York of the Midwest, and that's not a good thing !
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.
