  • No it is a Windy City. Probably somewhere in Tornado Alley is the windiest city.
  • No, it was named the Windy City because of the politics there under Mayor Daly back in the day. A lot of hot air being blown around.
  • I think it is the windest city.
  • It is really windy downtown though. If you go walking around there in the summer, it will take about 10 minutes for you to feel like you need a shower.

  • It's "The Windy City", but probably not the windiest city.
  • I've never herd it called the WINDEST city, but it's been pretty windy every time that I have visited it. If it's not the wind off the lake, it's the wind from the liberals sound holes.
  • Never been there, must be pretty windy, that's all I hear about how windy it is in Chicago.
  • never been there, but i would have to put Oklahoma City up to bat for that title as well.
  • It is often very windy there on the shores of Michigan. But it's "The Windy City" - and its not a reference to the weather but to blowhard politicians, who were especially blustery (even for the day) back in the 1880s through the 1920s.

  • Never heard it said to be the windest city just the Windy City.
  • Not even close.. Shores near Michigan, or really any city on the lake puts up alot more wind.
  • Windy yes for several reasons...but it had better be as it was and may still be also "Hog butcher of the world" from Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago"!
  • The phrase 'Windy City' was coined as double entendre. It was a political reference to gasbag politicians there.

  • Chicago is very Windy indeed! You have to hang on to your children or they will be blown away, we almost lost a couple of kids one day due to the wind.
  • I live in the loop and come from the suburbs. I seem to think it is REALLY WINDY here downtown due to the lakefront being so close. Sometimes I get blown down the sidewalk because it's so windy. LOL! A ot of my customers that see me in my office downtown are from out of the country and agree it's a very windy city.
  • Chicago is called the Windy City, not because of the wind velocity, but the hot air of our politicians. There are many cities that are windier than Chicago, including Milwaukee and Boston for example.
  • I don't know that it's the windiest city (I don't believe it claims to be) but it certainly is a windy city.
