Better for what? What's the criteria?

I can tell you because I'm hungry for lunch that Boston is better for seafood and Chicago is better for a little fast-food delicacy known as the "Italian Beef Sandwich".

Currently Boston is better for sports, but that could always change (and now that the Red Sox have one twice, their fans can get over that angst anytime now).

Better for overall quality of life and living.

Are you actually thinking about moving to either of those areas and have criteria to help you decide, or do you just want to know random subjective opinions of others just for your amusement?

"Better for overall quality of life and living" is so broad.

Acutally thinking of moving to either one after high school. I just want a fresh start after being in the same place for so long.

Can you explain a little bit more specifically in what you are looking for in a city?

Both are great cities, but different in many ways. It will help if you can provide some type of criteria for yourself.

I have lived in Boston my whole life but Chicago, along with San Fran round out my favorite cities I've been to. I voted Boston, but it does depend what you're looking for.

They both are great cities to me.

While Chicago has a better downtown, Boston has much more interesting homes and styles of lights, etc.

I found more to do in Chicago in terms of sightseeing, restaurants, theatre, and cultural venues, because it's of course a much bigger city, but Boston's an A city in my book as well.

If Chicago didn't have such TERRIBLE weather, there would probably be 30 million people living there. It is an amazing city
