Chicago. Not crowded at all in comparison to New York. The restaurant on the right, called The Berghoff, is a Chicago landmark - it was opened in 1898.

Big Red Foot, Chicago

Big Red Foot, Chicago

Big Red Foot at St James Episcopal Church, Chicago, IL. Very little
information about this on the Internet, but I think it is a public
sculpture by Mary Seyfarth, and, as I understand - it is nonstationary - can be in other place when you see it next time.
