Seriously, if you consider those NYC scenes "hilly", then there are parts of Chicagoland that are "hilly" and just as scenic. Its apparent you havent explored much of the western Chicago suburbs that are just as hilly as what you showed in your NYC pics.

Those photographs aren't of Chicago. This wasn't a comparison of which suburb of X city is hillier. This is New York City vs Chicago and the last time I checked, Staten Island, Bronx, Queens and Manhattan were all part of New York City.

If we want to take it further and compare the terrain of Chicagoland and the New York City area, be my guest.

All these photographs are in New York state and within very close proximity to New York City in and around Westchester County, NY (which is a suburb county of NYC).
















And a few miles out in New Jersey....



Like I said, Chicago is flat compared to New York City and Chicagoland is as flat as a pancake compared to the New York City area.
