Default Chicago

Which east coast city feels the most like or reminds of Chicago and why. It can be based on politics, crime, nightlife, food culture, music, waterfronts, skylines, street grids, festivals, or just overall vibe of the people and city.

I think that Buffalo feels a lot like Chicago. The city being on a Great Lake also and they have their own unique local food culture. It reminds me alot also of Chicago in the summer time with all the festivals, Taste of Buffalo, concerts, and the harbor that kind of reminds me a little of Navy Pier.

Baltimore reminds me also of Chicago because of its waterfront rivals Chicago's waterfront. The murder rates are high and their music culture is a lot similar. Chicagoans feel a little southern and very blue collar to me and so does Baltimore.

New York?

Or does that much more accurate answer hurt your pride? Why isn't NYC one of the choices on this pole?

Skyscrapers, diversity, extensive "El"/"Subway" systems, cities that never sleep, etc.

I vote NYC.. However, I didn't vote on this pole because NYC isn't one of the choices.

ehhh

D.C. is one of those cities we're it has aspects of other big cities in the country. There are some parts that remind me of Chicago's southside minus the els.

No part of Baltimore reminds me of Chi-town. However the attitude is about the same.

Baffalo? nahh

Pittsburgh? nahh

Philly, kinda in some parts, especially we're the el runs at.

NYC is really the only city that closely resembles Chicago.
