For a city that finishes on most lists 2nd to NYC in this country, and only 1/3 the size? Youre selling Chicago incredibly short.

Youre listing quantity. Im talking quality.


Ive lived in NYC. Fam is from Brooklyn. Not much compares to NYC, but I wouldnt say Chicago falls incredibly short. Chicago packs quite a punch for a city only 1/3 the size of NYC.
You really believe Chicago is in the same league as New York? Entertainment wise, Chicago falls more than incredibly short. New York is arguably the entertainment capital of the country. Music is also no contest. As well as fashion. This post is laughable.

It does finish second on most lists but the distance between NYC & Chicago is enormous. The subway analogy is a prime example. Chicago is a great city but it has no answer for Time Square, Rockafeller Center, iconic landmarks like the ESB or Statue of Liberty, Broadway, The U.N., popular neighborhoods like Harlem, GV, SoHo, etc.....

No, I dont think Chicago falls "incredibly short" as you said. Im talking quality of life here.


You didnt address food, or architecture. Does Chicago education also fall "incredibly short" to NYC?

Music in/from Chicago falls incredibly short?

In terms of what here. What are you saying, exactly?

Theres no question NYC outdoes Chicago, im not arguing that, im arguing that its "incredibly short" as you said. I dont think so at all.

Youre talking to someone whos family is from Brooklyn, lived there and around the country. I know all about NYC.

How do Chicago bars fall incredibly short of NYC bars? I think there are plenty of bars in Chicago better than ones in NYC, and vice versa. In fact, I actually think some of the entertainment in Chicago is better than NYC.

Its not about quantity at all.

^^^Chicago practically invented the hip/sports bar scene and is usually ranked above NY in this category. But obviously NY has more.

Chicago is "incredibly warmer" than Minneapolis in the winter time.

See how dumb that sounds?

China and India are better countries than the USA.

China and India have more people.

See how quantity doesnt work?

Does NYC have 10,000 more bars than Chicago or something?

Youre making Chicago out like its Frog Balls, AR.

Chicago has no history, no iconic buildings or monuments, or neighborhoods. Absolutely.
