I lived near Chicago for close to 14 years and can confirm the fact that they keep that Downtown nice and tidy. The Landscaping and Pedestrian experience is amazingly well kept.

Density is another issue entirely. Chicago is known as “The City of Broad Shoulders” for a reason. It’s similar to NYC, but with a lot of extra breathing room added. NYC is cramped in comparison to Chicago, but there is no doubt that Chi Town is an insanely urban city. Philly is much smaller in every kind of feeling when compared to Chicago. The only cities I can think of that are smaller than Chicago but denser are SF and Boston.

I’m not sure I see what you’re talking about. If you’re talking about the two pillars of concrete, those aren’t cores. That’s part of a bridge haha
