Yup... my bucktown 3-bedroom is the same rent as my buddy's upper east side studio. From what I've seen though, New Yorkers like Chicago for a year or two but always have to ultimately get back to New York.

Given the amount of travel we do for our jobs, though, for the money I save in NYC rent I can live in Chicago, alt travel there any weekend I want (effectively living in NYC) and still come out ahead financially

Another plus being in Chicago is a 4 hour flight can get you anywhere in the US. But agree w/A1 most New Yorkers end up missing NYC.

Yeah wish my wife would consider Chicago.

Any reason why they go back? NYC is awesome, but I can't imagine Chicago not offering as much or close to it

Chicago just seems too empty sometimes to me

M1- what's a few examples of glaring differences? For me, it just seemed too empty, there are like noticeable areas in the city that seem sketchy, not as many convenient shops and things close too early

Yeah. Simply put the energy is just not here. If you've lived in NYC you know what I'm talking about. If not, probably not so much.

The energy being long ass lines for everything u enjoy? Im getting tired of it

A2- there were just as many lines in Chicago?

Were there? That sucks haha

I start a new job in 1.5 weeks and I’m really scared to work with my new manager. She was very inflexible while negotiating comp which I understand.

Need advice. Been with my SO for over 5 years, live together and not married. We went to a sporting event with a couple and they both mentioned how my SO just left me to go socialize with others and everything during the entire tailgate. They mentioned how it’s not ok. I agree but it hurts having someone else point it out. What would others do if their SO constantly does this? My friends want to talk to my SO about it but I feel like that’ll come across in a bad way.
