6 things Chicago is still better at than New York (UPDATED 11/12/13)

November 12, 2013|By Ernest Wilkins, @ErnestWilkins

With the news that One Freedom Tower will be officially named the largest building in the Western Hemisphere, Chicagoans are speaking out about the percieved slight in high volumes on social media today. Some are decrying yet another crown jewel being taken away from our city, but there's no reason to be upset. In case you forgot, here are 6 things that Chicago is better than New York at, as of this exact moment:

  1. Basketball. 
  2. Rap music.
  3. Not having piles of trash on major streets.
  4. Not having citizens digging through said trash for donut/croissaint hybrids.
  5. Donald Trump not living here.
  6. Being adults and not bitching about a building being taller than another building, especially considering it means absolutely nothing in the realm of anything important.
Wait, scratch that last one.
