Lol come on really? Chicago cannot compare to New York. New York is one of the greatest cities in the world.

I cant speak on LA since i have never been there but it would seem to me that LA should have surpassed NYC a long time ago, just with the film production industry alone. I never said Chicago is the top city right now but i do believe it will surpass both NYC an LA in the next decade. This city just keeps on expanding in all aspects and i dont think will stop anytime soon.

Expanding how ? According to the census figures it is shrinking.
Chicago 2000 census population:2,896,000 - 2010 census population:2,695,000

That's a drop of 200,000 people(almost 10%) in the last 10 years !

Chicago top NYC what area? NYC is already far ahead of Chicago in like almost literally every single category and the city is continuing to grow with the outer boroughs improving dramatically.

You prob didn't even come to NYC and even if you did you prob did a few lame touristee things and did not really explore or enjoy the city at all.

Just because you overheard people speaking a language other than English does not necessarily mean they can't speak English. It could easily mean they are bilingual (or even multilingual) as many New Yorkers and visitors are. You apparently are not.

If "too international" or "too cosmopolitan" are reasons for you to not like NYC, then you should probably stay in a less international and less cosmopolitan city.

btw, this should have been posted in the City Vs. City forum. It's not really interesting for us in the NYC forum to hear people whine and complain about how cosmopolitan we are.

I hope Chicago surpasses NYC! You can gladly take the 6 million extra people we have.

Agree that this seems to be in the wrong folder.

It's actually a bit puzzling to see someone who purports to be a happy Chicago native complaining that NYC is an international hub. Perhaps the OP would be even happier if he moved to West Bubble. He and his new neighbors could congratulate themselves on their town's provincialism.

Have any of you ever been to Chicago?? There is nothing in NYC that cannot be had in Chicago. Im not mad about anything what i am saying is IMO New York is highly overrated and i dont understand why people seem to think NYC is so much better than the Chi. I am not going to listen to some poll online about how Chicago is supposedly shrinking, if you dont belive me come visit and you might change your mind. We have a long and glorious history, Chicago invented the skyscraper, we have always had better mass transit, and we are not overly cramped and crowded like NYC. I do believe NYC might have us beat in the weather department though (we have not had any earthquakes or hurricanes though lol).

Both cities are not that great, but I always wanted to at least check out Chicago once.
