I read an article that Quezon City may be becoming the capital again, replacing Manila? I read that the intellectuals and artists are generally in Quezon City (this is like the Los Angeles of Philippines) whereas Manila is like D.C. (aka the capital). Or Manila could be the NYC of the Philippines.

Quezon City is part of Metro Manila which is essentially Manila (even if Manila is technically a separate municipality, but that's really small in area, even smaller than Manhattan in NYC). All of Metro Manila is only 237 square miles.

According to this website, these cities are near Quezon City:

Cities near Quezon City, Philippines

6 km to Mandaluyong, Philippines
6 km to Manila, Philippines
9 km to Makati, Philippines
10 km to Antipolo, Philippines
11 km to Cainta, Philippines
12 km to San Mateo, Philippines
13 km to Taytay, Philippines
17 km to Paranaque, Philippines
21 km to Las Pinas, Philippines

I'm looking for condos that are affordable in a not so congested location but is still accessible to the entertainment industry. Quezon City isn't bad. I was told Makati is expensive so is Manila. Quezon City was my choice since I did more research on it. It's at the heart of the Philippine "Hollywood" I was told.

Philippine Film Studios Inc. in Muntinlupa City
and Wiki lists a lot of them which seem to be all over the Philippines but I would guess the majority of movies made in the Philippines are made somewhere in Manila since most of the movies are in Tagalog. Most Filipino films seem to be shot on location, I do not think there is an area like Hollywood but I did find the below.

It is all congested as it is all Metro Manila. It is an urban sprawl like Los Angeles and not set in boroughs on different islands like New York City

that could be true.

For the Philippines Metro Manila is expensive and Makati is one of the most expensive parts of Metro Manila. The city of Manila is more affordable than Makati. But even in Makati, expensive is in comparison to the rest of the Philippines. Compared to the United States it's not so expensive. Not nearly as pricey as a comparable area in the United States. Besides NYC I don't know what other American cities might be kind of comparable, and it is the NYC of the Philippines, but compared to NYC, or D.C., or San Francisco, it is straight up affordable.
