Chicago is a great place to visit. However, as much as I enjoyed the culture, architecture, history, etc... I'm not sure I could ever live in the heart of a major metropolitan area.
1. It seems like the majority of people wear earbuds and keep to themselves while in public. There is not much socializing amongst strangers.
2. Standing underneath the L-Train tracks, while a train passes, is very loud. It's similar to the sound of a roller-coaster; multiplied by ten.
3. Everything is fast paced, loud, crowded and more expensive.
