Chi-Town references = Big Apple references?


Everybody knows what the Big Apple is....but how often do you hear people actually say it?

Also of Note: Frisco/San Fran, ATL

So true, I have family in the Chicago area, and I've spent a lot of time there. I have never heard anyone who lives in Chicago call it Chi-Town. Never.

Same. They may have said Chi or Chi-city. But most just said whatever side they are at or out west or out north. Never have heard Chi-Town. Just like in DC you will never hear Chocolate City. They hate that out here.

Usually when someone says ATL, its a dead give away that they are either from out of town, or a suburban dude trying to act hip
And no one calls Miami the 'magic city' or Dallas 'big D' except for out of towners/tourist.

So I guess to be safe, we should call every city its name without slashing it to some abbreviation?

To the OP: I think that just packing up and bugging out of your old haunt gives you a fresh start and with a view for new opportunities, one sees things in a more positive light. Honestly I do agree NYC is in a better way than CHI at this point in time. It simply has recovered from the insanity that was America in the 80's and before. It's a liberating thing to leave behind the old patterns and start yourself anew with a new group. You should go to NY!

And to those who think NYC has not changed, I assure you it is a world of difference from 20 years ago. New Jack city was for real people. 42nd street and Times Sq was gangland.
