The Chicago Metropolitan area is much bigger then Toronto. And what does having a more vibrant neighborhood scene mean? Im not saying your wrong, but what exactly does that mean?

Toronto and Chicago are similar in that they are both on a lake, the lay out of the city is somewhat similar. aside from that they are not that much alike, Again different demographics give the city different vibes.

The Greater Golden Horseshoe should be used as the proper comparison to Chicagoland, and the difference between the two is only about a million people right now, with Toronto rapidly gaining.

What I mean by "neighbourhood scene" is the vibrant commercial strips outside the downtown core, such as Little Italy, Queen West/Parkdale, The Annex, Roncesvalles, The Beach, The Junction, Bloor West Village, The Danforth, Corso Italia, Chinatown East, Little India, etc. All these areas are safe and bustling and filled with interesting businesses of all sorts.

Mod Note:

Multiple posts on a never-ending debate like "is this city better than that city" is bad enough, but now that we've strayed off the original topic, it's time to move on.
