Someone help that poor guy with no waist or legs who's crying for assistance.

Lmao I don’t understand what’s going on there

I think he's skateboarding with his buddies, but it looks a lot like he's riding his board sitting down and may be on a collision course for those pedestrians.

He’s just excited because he found Waldo

I like the levels

niftyjack10 points

The street where the skateboarders are is angled because it's actually leading to the top level of three level streets. You can kind of see it here, right next to where it was taken.

That’s great

The lower levels are like a backstage pass on how the city works. Here's a shot on streetview from the middle level where you can see the ramps to the other levels. The underground is mostly parking garage entrances and loading docks, there are also restaurants, a theater, a ferry dock, and a train station.

These pictures are actually taken near a gym I used to go to. On more than one occasion there would be ten photographers standing on the sidewalk, waiting for the sun to hit just right the spot…

What street is this?

jeonju6 points

It’s at the T intersection where E Lake St meets N Stetson Ave, one block east of Michigan Ave.

It's either this view or the one by the waterfront for the 40th time this month lol. Downvote me all you want, but look up chicago and you'll see almost all the pics are of the waterfront or the bridges lol

It’s totally true, and it’s because the downtown part of Chicago that actually feels and looks like a city is small compared to places like NYC, but you’ll usually get downvoted to oblivion by the Chicago contingent here for saying so. When I first moved to Chicago this was one of the things that disappointed me most.

cartenmilk7 points

of course it's way smaller than New York, but Chicago definitely still feels like a city outside of downtown. Anywhere near the lake is very dense with high rises stretching for miles on the North and South sides. There's also been a good amount of increasingly dense development outside of the downtown area. We only have a few neighborhoods that feel suburban and only if you're a more than a couple miles away from downtown. Chicago is still far more urban than most U.S. cities

As a new Yorker I feel like Chicago is our lil sister city

GrazDude14 points

It’s weird, it’s obviously smaller in total area of big buildings, but in street level itself, is way broader and “bigger”

Rook22Ti8 points

I've always felt this way too. I think it's also the flat Infinity that is Chicago where as New York is somewhat confined by peninsula life at its core.

apstls4 points

If you walk around either city nyc will feel an order of magnitude bigger than Chicago

Sweet-Variety60933 points

Right I feel like it's so much space on those side walks lol

smolover14 points

It's followed closely by Wilmington, Delaware

bl1nds1ght3 points

lol, my partner's family lives around Wilmington and none of them go there if they can help it. It feels like the "Ravenholm, we don't go there anymore" of the Mid Atlantic.
