Default ....about Chicago

I haven't even been to Chicago.. but I love it!

A friend who lives in NYC for 35 years now.. says she's sorry to say people have stepped into a new realm of rudeness, on the sidewalks walking - bumping into people and can't say "excuse me" now -- it would interrupt their conversation..."I'm TALKING HERE"!!

I finally got around to visiting New York City last year.

It was all right, not bad, but to be honest it reminded me of just about any other Northeastern city, only thing 10 times larger.

There are maybe a dozen "big" cities on this list.
Big is a relative term. These are the the 50 most populated cites in the US in order according to the 2010 census.
