Chicago is more dangerous than The Bronx.

Nor is Chicago. I just thought we were having fun acting like we were stupid!

And no, those museums are awful comparisons. You need to actually get out and experience things west of the Hudson. You're so sheltered.

And those museums are awful in comparison to the spectacular ones in New York. Everything in Chicago is a few notches below New York City. Chicago reminds me of imitation designer goods.
Except for Shedd

I must be getting so tired of all of the other threads lately, because this is the only interesting thread. Politics, its getting old. Entertainment, boring. Sports, no one has anything to say, but You guys can go back and forth for hours. Love it. Don't let me stop you. I give you all two thumbs up for your enthusiasm. I am seriously getting a good laugh from these posts. You guys are the best. Please keep it up...............That's not sarcasm either, I would be bored on this site without the NY vs Chicago threads.....Keeping me entertained..........alright, get back to fighting,....ding ding....

That was the only time you have ever been to Manhattan or been fifty miles away from White Plans. Admit it.
Typical Chicago mentality: you can't win using arguments so you will move on the personal attacks....
No wonder celebrities treat Chicago as flyover country.....

Don't be ridiculous, Lucas.
Of course everything can be done in Chicago. The same way watching the Yankees is pretty much the same as watching the Cubs.

Culture of denial.

Sheltered? Chicago is in the middle of nowhere as opposed to New York that is close to DC, Boston, and Philly to mention the largest cities...
Chicagoaon do not have any point of reference so everything that is available in Chicago is for them world-class...
