My only comparison with chicago being similar to ny is based on the urban structure. It is also true that outside of chicago there is nothing else. Once you leave the city, you definitely know you are in the midwest. Even though there are small country towns on the east coast, there are still major cities within 1 or 2 hours from each other. Once you leave the next major city is at least 5 hours away (except milwuakee). Chicago being in the midwest and being surrounded by midwestern towns/cities, is why there is a noticeable difference between chicago and ny. Anyways, having said all of that, Chicago is still a better, and more vibrant place to live than atlanta or dallas.
I guess it depends if you consider Indianapolis a major city. It cant be any lesser than Milwaukee. I do like Milwaukee better though.
