Can someone attempt to very loosely draw similarities between neighborhoods in Buenos Aires and neighborhoods in New York for me? I was once told that was IMPOSSIBLE to do for New York and Montreal and then went there myself and realised that it was completely possible to do you just had to be able to compare with perspective. It might be helpful if you've been to both cities in the past 5 years.

Anyway, it's just a way I use to tak to people about a city, I find one they can relate to. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Gracias!!

well, unfortunately, i never been to NYC, but i do live in BA and could tell you how the city is.

I think the comparison between BA and NYC is flattering for BA, cause for what i ve seen in pictures/movies, NYC is a gorgeous city, more gorgeous than BA as far as i can say. However, BA is a city with its own vibe, a huge cultural movement, an incredible nightlife, and full of people of everywhere in the world, and I can say its similar to NYC in those things.

If you want, i can tell you what the trendy neighbourhoods are and thei identity and maybe you can do the comparison with NY?
cause i really dont know much about NY to be able to compare it with BA neighbourhoods.

I always get this when I ask about two cities. People can't seem to see beyond the obvious superficial characteristics. I'm not claiming at all that New York and Buenos Aires are similar. I am simply asking for EQUIVALENTS. All things considered, what areas in one are like what areas in the other? They don't have to be equal, they just have to representative of a similar feel, atmosphere, or cultural significance. It can be done with any two cities.

Buenos Aires has more in common with Paris, Barcelona, and Madrid then it does with New York as far as overall feel is concerned however you have neighborhoods such as Puerto Madero, Palermo, and Recoleta which are very similar to Battery Park City, Greenwich Village/Soho, and the Upper East Side respectively as far as neighborhood vibes are concerned.

Also given that Buenos Aires is the economic/political/cultural hub for Argentina, there is a similar overall vibe in that the best and brightest from Argentina tend to migrate there which is very similar to New York in that aspect.

US cities and their UK equivalents?

If you look here I've done a similar thing for London/New York and for London/Paris. Would be interesting to see one for BsAs!
