DieHardRennie

I usually think of Capone when I hear "Eastern State Penitentiary".

Next things were all good. Chicago Pizza, Chicago hot dog


DieHardRennie

Personally, I prefer a NY style thin crust pizza myself. And seeing Capone's cell at Eastern State Penitentiary was really cool.

“It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say. Is it the new “Blues Mobile?”

Windy city. Is it really windy? I live in NYC so all the grimey crime aspect doesn't phase me


xNugYT

I actually live in the south loop and honestly Chicago lives up to it's nickname. The other day it got so windy that down the street I saw a chihuahua rolling down for a good few seconds and seeing their owner chase after them because of how strong the wind was. I know most people know why it's windy in Chicago but just incase if you don't know - it's super windy because Chicago is very grid like. It was established much later in the founding of the country than New York was so the architects wanted to plan out the city much better. The only problem is when a city is more grid like, the wind can build momentum through pressurized pathways combined with the tall and populated buildings. To add another element on top of rigerous tall, grid-like buildings, Chicago is right next to lake Michigan. So with the already high winds coming from the beach side of lake Michigan, it's being fueled by the city thus creating winds that once a month will literally blow you off your feet.

Learned something today, thanks!


missjvj

All true, urban canyons


[deleted]

It’s windy cuz of all the politician in Chicago. They can’t seem to shut up


Interesting-Duck6793

This is actually the true meaning behind the nickname, the political history.


awesome_nj

Not more windy than anywhere else really


Katy_Life

It’s not, I went to LA recently and realized how much windier it is in Chicago


bigted42069

It was named the “Windy City” due to the politicians being full of hot air! HOWEVER the winter wind off Lake Michigan is hateful


yuhdoanmadder

The nickname comes from the windbag politicians, not the actual windy weather. Just so happens strong winds come off Lake Michigan too.

Went for the first time this year, week of July 4. I enjoyed the trip, but I don’t care to visit again. I don’t feel it had much to offer after seeing the typical sights. Definitely worth going once though 👌
