I really don't know what to say about people like that. To each their own I guess.

The pace of life of downtown LA is a lot slower than downtown Chicago. Anywhere in Chicago city and suburbs beyond the greater downtown Chicago is a lot slower pace than LA county as a whole. Chicago beyond the 312 area code feels very urban-midwestern (which is a good thing for many reasons).

That would depend substantially on the time of day.

agreed. during rush hour the sidewalks are crazy in the loop. after hours a little more sleepy than CC overall but i have seen the loop make some substantial chnages over the last 10 years. Weekends CC is more vibrant than the lloop overall but neither are exactly lacking mostly anytime these days

Just walk down Michigan Ave. in Chicago. Slow, large, herds of people.
Slow drivers? Good Lord. The only time people drive slow around here is when the sheer volume of traffic forces them to. When the roadways are clear, i don't know why they bother with stop lights and street signs because light doesn't travel fast enough to catch Chicago drivers.

I jaywalk all the time in Chicago (Im a New Yorker), but I see hundreds of people do the same every day. Not sure how you say people in Chicago dont Jaywalk
Agreed 100%. If you haven't seen a Chicagoan jaywalk then you've never been there period,..suburbs don't count.

Typical elitist fabricated lies, seems to be the norm on C-D.
