CITIES WERE AN EXPERIMENT THAT FAILED:

Chicago Population Sinks to 1920 Level ( KEVIN HELLIKER, 2/17/11, WSJ)

A larger-than-expected exodus over the past 10 years reduced the population of Chicago to a level not seen in nearly a century.

The U.S. Census Bureau reported Tuesday that during the decade ended in 2010, Chicago's population fell 6.9% to 2,695,598 people, fewer than the 2.7 million reported back in 1920.


And Chicago is as good as it gets.
