I must have missed the strip malls, gas stations and parking lots in Central Paris. I must have missed the vast abandoned dead zones and killing fields covering 60% of the city, like the South and West Sides of Chicago.

And, hey, Schaumburg is basically like Versailles, correct?

Since you're comparing with cities many times the size and prominence of Chicago, you totally agree that it's fair to compare Chicago to Milwaukee and Indianapolis, correct?

Because Indy is far closer to Chicago than Chicago is to Tokyo.
I love how you put words in others mouths to try to make your own arguments seem more plausible. Thats exactly what someone does when they know they are completely off-base, or they are just a complete idiot. Either way, keep it coming. Im sure you'll still try to get on this site from the mental asylum youre headed to, LOL.

Watching you argue in the face of all the facts presented (prestigious magazine world rankings etc), is basically a microcosm of all your attempts to make Chicago look like a crappy irrelevant hellhole. You just cant win, and your persistence makes you look insane.

^But NYC IS a great city. I love it, its really second to none in the world almost across the board. Theres no disputing that. But its the people not even from that city, trying to crap on other important and awesome cities to make themselves seem big and cool somehow, that's the problem.

This guy is some sucker probably from the midwest, from some unimportant industrial town most likely, forever jealous of the awesomeness of Chicago, who needs to use NYC as his base to stand on so he can finally look down on one of the greatest cities of the world. Instead of being prideful that Chicago is a great midwest city, he has lost his identity and tries to latch on the identity of a larger more influential city, to make himself seem cool and important. Its incredibly lame, and once he realizes how lost he is, he will require substantial therapy sessions to get his mind back.

LOL, nice job trying to change the subject! I guess the boosters have run out of rebuttals.

I never said Chicago wasn't an important Midwestern city. In fact, I'm really glad you mentioned this!

Again, Chicago is an important Midwestern city! Say it a few times and maybe you'll be shocked back to reality! Rust Belt reality, for once!

Then maybe we won't have to endure the "Chicago is a global financial center", "Chicago is comparable to Tokyo", "River North is just like Midtown", "NYC and Chicago are the same because they have Mexicans" nonsense!

River North isn't remotely comparable to Midtown.

Or maybe you're using the faulty logic previously used on this thread. "NYC and Chicago both have Mexicans, so they are alike". "River North and Midtown both have buildings, roads, and people, so they are alike".
Well, they both have Starbucks.

You've been preaching the same rhetoric for what, two years now? I could go look through the post made by Osito, Euros1, Dementor, and now Ohio and find your current post all saying the exact same thing. If you wanted to last a little longer, you should have come up with some new material...but you don't have any

In Ohio248's world:

person with solid grasp of reality = booster.

disgruntled jealous midwesterner with biased agenda to try to showcase all perceived negative aspects of Chicago in hopes to discredit it as a world class city, even though it is consistently ranked by renowned organizations and in prestigous magazines as a top ten world city = himself.

LOL, what a joke he is.

By the way if anybody is interested Z/Yen is running the data sets now that City of London e.g. City of London used to run.
Noticeable is the *strong* growth from the Asian cities, particularly Shanghai.

I've been on City Data for maybe two months, genius. Three months tops.

I don't speak for anyone else, and don't know or care about other folks you disagree with.

Apparently you have no argument whatsover, and just change the subject with irrelevent nonsense. Just endless, mindless boosterism.

I follow the City Data guidelines. I also follow the thread topics. I suggest you do the same.

As for material, you don't seem to be able to rebutt anything whatsoever. You just go off topic with nonsense about folks who dissed you years ago on C-D. Boo-hoo.

Back on thread topic-

Chicago and NYC aren't remotely comparable. No, a presence of Mexicans don't make them comparable.

Chicago and Paris aren't remotely comparable. No, Schaumburg isn't quite Versailles.

Chicago and Tokyo aren't remotely comparable. Not too many bombed-out ghettos in Tokyo.
