With the Chicago Bears playing the New York Giants on Thursday night. And the Chicago Blackhawks playing the New York Islanders on Friday, we thought we would list off five reasons why Chicago is better than New York City.

1. The Skyline: New York City is known for the Flat iron building, Empire State Building, and soon to be built Freedom tower. New York has an iconic skyline, but their “city” is so spread out. Unless you have a helicopter it’s not very easy to see. You have to ride a ferry-boat to get to the Statue of Liberty because it is on an island. The Chicago Skyline sits on Lake Michigan and can easily fit into many iconic photos. The best photos in Chicago are from the Shed Aquarium looking back at the city.

2. The Pizza: The New York Style of pizza is so flimsy and thin that it takes you several pieces to get full. Chicago is famous for its deep dish pizza. Deep Dish Pizza is more satisfying than flimsy foldable pizza. There was rumor several years ago that Martin Brodeur and other goalies ventured to Chicago and piged out on Deep Dish Pizza. Everyone comes to Chicago for the Pizza.
