yeah, if you like one of Chi or NYU more than the other, or if the money is really different, go with that one
But I love both cities so much!!!!!!
I encourage you to visit Hyde Park before you make your decision (if you haven't already)...
I have quite a few times, and the UChicago bubble seems nice enough. If I go there, I expect to only ever go to the nice parts outside the campus. Certainly Harlem isn't much better, and same thing there--I would only venture to safe parts outside of campus. I meant that I like both cities in general very much.
Of course I haven't gotten into either yet so maybe this is a bit premature.
