Its a matter of opinion, and I guess a'lot of people's opinion is that Chicago is not as cool as LA or NYC.

Most of it is filthy, the traffic blows, the downtown is pathetic, etc. LA, besides Phoenix, is the least impressive big city Ive ever been to, thats the honest truth. Big bucks buys you a crap house in a crap neighborhood. Yes the weather is supremely nice, but thats another story. Ill never understand why Chicago is in LA's shadow as far as exposure goes. Both are about equal world-players, so Ill give LA that much.
That's not what Kobe Bryant thinks of L.A. And what's a Hollywood Retard.

Go to LA and see how many of them even have chicago, or new york for that matter on their radar. not many. Go to new york and its the same story.


So chicago has a better skyline than LA. Well everyone knows that. Skylines dont completely make a city. As far as food goes, give me a break La has wonderful food. Mexican, Central american, south american, african, asian, eastern european, etc. There is no need to knock a cities dining scene, just because you couldn't find a vienna beef hot dog.

Chicago also does not have nearly the amount of diversity that LA or the LA metro area has...and if you think otherwise, which i cant see how than you need help... California, specifically southern California, probably has waaay more diversity than pretty much anywhere save, new york city.

Its people like you, that make others think chicagoans have an inferiority complex.

If you truley loved chicago, like me, and as much as i hate to admitt it, STEVE O, than you would just sit back, relax and realize that CHICAGO, is the nation's best kept secret.
Thank you for saying that. Skylines doesn't really make the city better. Everyone knows that L.A. has the worst Skyline but its doesn't mean that L.A. is a ever bad city.

LA and NYC keep on widening the gap between themselves and Chicago. Chicago is great but its not growing fast enough to keep up with the "big 2" lol. Now you have metros like DFW and Houston closing the gap between themselves and Chicago, I know you people are gonna hate me for saying that but its true. DFW and Houston are hubs for culture, arts, industry, finance, etc of the south. And as of now it seems they WILL pass Chicago in population and importance. But Chicago will always remain the "true" american city.
Thanks for saying that. L.A. And NYC Are the best Cities in America. But to be Honest Chicago is truly a Great City. I have no problem with NYC. And Ive visited Chicago And found people Very Boring. I Find people in L.A. And NYC So Active Outdoors.

I've been to all 3...and Chicago is definetely the least interesting of the 3. For the Midwest region, its a great city though.

I find it funny how nearly everyone from wherever they are from, always say THEY are from the most diverse, most best city. Same threads on Sacramento California, Houston Texas, Toronto, etc. JUST because the local newspapers and people there want it to be true, doesn't make it true.

After having lived in NYC, and visiting Chicago, I just didn't see the 'interntional' feel whatsoever with the same level as NYC or LA. Sure its there compared to Milwaukee, Minneapolis or whatever.. but nowhere near LA/NYC.

Yah Sure, Your Comparing Chicago To Milwaukee (which I truley do like) thats kind of silly. And on top of that Chicago sure as heck does have an international feel to it. Show me your international feel in LA cause I sure don't see that.
