Subdomain versus subdirectory

With regards to say a national service that has locations based in 10 cities. Each city needs to have individual content, such as blogs, info pages, etc.

Is it better to have (or does it matter):

chicago.example.com or example.com/chicago

Furthermore if I go with a subdirectory and each city has a blog, how do I enable it so the blog only effects its parent.

For example example.com/chicago/blog should not affect example.com/washington
