CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago vs. New York.

It’s a rivalry as old as the City Of Big Shoulders itself.

Better sports town? Better pizza? (Remember Jon Stewart’s rant on deep dish?) Better hot dog? Better place to live?

City Pass created a detailed info-graphic that compares the Big Apple and the Second City.

There are several interesting nuggets:

New York’s median housing price is nearly double Chicago’s, but median income is not that much different.

New York’s subway system is much larger.

New York is a more expensive place to live. (No. 1 in the United States vs. No. 7).
