: I don't know why you persist in thinking the New York article is a model for this one, since that article is (generously) at 'usable' status, two levels ''below'' this one. (Also, nobody from Chicago gives a crap how New York does anything.) Nevertheless, I have 25 years of experience of not being able to hail a taxi off the street up by Howard Street or anywhere in the vicinity of it. So you're objectively wrong.

== Lede (again) ==
I put two movie references in, but I think they are appropriate. Ferris and the Brothers both have Chicago as a character in the movie and give people who've never visited there a picture to put in their heads. The last sentence of the second paragraph is new, but touches on the friendliness of people while bringing up comedy and nightlife in Chicago as well as the many sports teams.
Anyway, just trying to find a good tone in the lead for this increasingly excellent article. [[User:184.108.40.206|220.127.116.11]] 03:23, 13 June 2011 (EDT)
:The new lead is improved over previous attempts at revision, but it just doesn't flow like the old one does. (And when did Ferris Bueller ever try to ''tame'' Chicago's swagger? If anything, he added to it.) [[User:LtPowers|LtPowers]] 21:27, 17 June 2011 (EDT)
I disagree that the old one "flows". Revision is going back up to generate comments from 3rd parties.
