Chicago has many nicknames like the Second City (to New York
), City of Big Shoulders and the Windy City. The weather sucks; it's sweltering in the summer and below zero most of the winter. The central business district (downtown) is called the Loop because the El
encompasses it. Ethnic groups are spread nearly evenly throughout the city, except for the west side, which is mostly African American. We have two airports, two baseball teams, a corrupt local government and a lot of people from southern Illinois who are jealous of us. Contrary to popular belief (as seen above) the north side is not all white and the south side is not all black. Kanye West & the Smashing Pumpkins are two artists from Chicago.
Chicago is inaccurately misrepresented in this "URBAN DICTIONARY" thus far.
