In other words, I am 100% correct, and you just don't want to hear it anymore.

I guess the forum would be a much better place if we listened to more of your nonsense.

Please enlighten us all- how can a city with one-third the crime rate of Chicago have worse crime than Chicago? Please explain this amazing assertion!

NYC and Chicago don't share similarities in any of these categories.

Building type? Nope
NYC and Chicago are totally different. NYC looks like Philly; Chicago looks like Detroit.

Immigrants? Nope
NYC's largest immigrant groups are Dominicans and Chinese; Chicago's largest groups are Mexican and Polish. And Chicago has a fraction of NYC's immigration rates.

Food culture? Nope
What's the similarity? In both cities, humans eat food? There's no comparison.

Nature of business? Nope
NYC is driven by finance and international transactions; Chicago isn't strong in either category.

Ethnic makeups? Nope
NYC has a totally different makeup, with Puerto Ricans, Russians, West Indians, Albanians, Colombians, Ecuadorians, Guyanese, and many other groups with small representation in Chicago.

I hope you're not suggesting that one city is made up of better immigrant groups than the other. Chicago is strong in finance, by the way. Just because you say it's not, doesn't make it so.

In other words were tired of telling you how wrong you are and you still don't shut up.

All the Chicago bashing for the sake of Chicago bashing by those who live in NYC will only cast bad lights on the type of person living in NYC. It's also annoying. This has been done 1000000 times before, a simple search confirms it, and just proves the OP lacks original thought.

New York doesn't have a significant Polish population or Mexican population as well? lol.

Chicago isn't strong in finance? Finance is one of the backbones of the Chicago economy. Do all of those top U of C grads just move elsewhere? Especially when Chicago has the largest futures exchange in the nation (CME) and the CME owns the NYMEX and the Dow Jones Indexes?


They both have innovative and award-winning food scenes (New York does have widely spread food trucks). Both cities are always top five, mostly top three in dining scenes in the United States.


All the ethnic groups you mentioned above have a decent showing in Chicago...Chicago city's Puerto Rican population second in the nation.

Actually NYC does have a significant polish population or mexican population? I mean the Majority of the Hispanic population in NY is puerto ricans. But we have plenty of Polish and Mexicans alright.

Have you heard about Queens?

Queens is the most diverse county in the United States among counties of 100,000+ population. There are 138 languages spoken in the borough. The top languages include:
English
Spanish
Chinese
Korean
Italian
Greek
Russian
Tagalog (Filipino)
French
Punjabi
Gujarati
Arabic

And this is not counting all the other boroughs of NYC.

I think you misread his post. I'm quite sure lakal is very aware of NYC possesses but plenty are extremely off base or have never even been to Chicago.
Lakal thanks for your post... saves me the frustration of replying to so much misinformation.

I on the other hand like a lot of cities, including New York so don't feel the need to grind an axe such as you, or ohio with great statements such as Chicago not being a player in finance or implying it had limited puerto rican population when in fact it is #2 in both of those categories.

or ignorant statements that you flood the entire board with such as this one

"I see…
You stated that Chicago has the biggest merchandise mart. However we do not need a big merchandise place because our local stores have many merchandises of any kind that we are able to find...."
-nycricanpapi

just saying...i know you know better than that.
