NY feels many cities in one city, while Chicago feels one big city.
No. Just no.

Time for a bus tour from Chicago to NYC. Beer and deep dish included.

Forget Brooklyn and the other growing clusters...

Take Manhattan alone: old, new, chaotic, tall, vast, u/c... ebbs and flows.

... and dominates in the skyscraper geek sweepstakes. Can't be photographed properly without stitching but once you get off the bus, you'll understand.

It not only feels like one city, it feels like the biggest city in the world.

3. Chicago is Tall. Period. Chicago has 7 supertalls with 1 supertall under contruction (makes 8) and 2 others that should start drilling next year. Plus a series of 900 footers and plenty of 800 footers.

Are we some 10 year old skyscraper geeks you are trying to play smart with? lol
Chicago has 7 supertalls with 1 U/C? Wut?

Also, if you check out streetscapeer's post on 13293, all you will see is a juicy cherry (the CBD) placed on the dust (rest of Chicago), no knock on Chicago either but just pointed it out to you

People usually think Chicago is the CDB and everything around it is just suburbs. This is so wrong. It is actually the medium to high density (not necessarily high rise) neighborhoods around the CBD that are the soul of the city. Small Businesses with residential upstairs. Streets full of life. Shopping, entertainment, etc. These neighborhoods are equivalent to many parts of Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn.

Agreed, Chicago has great neighborhoods outside the CBD. Wicker Park and Logan Square are some of my favorites.

That said, New York is massive and is so much more than Manhattan. Brooklyn alone has roughly the same population as Chicago (2.6 vs 2.7 mil) in half the area.
