I'd say Nassau County LI. Very similar to Queens (South Shore suburbs are more crowded/urbanized like Howard Beach or Middle Village, North Shore suburbs are more spread out and quiet like Douglaston and Bayside).

I live in Nassau and it's very different from Queens.

You can see the difference as soon as you cross the Nassau/Queens border!

I'm surprised Yonkers, Mt Vernon, and New Rochelle haven't decided to merge into a 6th NYC Borough.

I grew up there so I know as well, some areas resemble queens, obviously not areas like Garden City, Great Neck, etc. but some like Rockville Centre or Lynbrook have busy city-ish like downtowns.

Like New York, in the diverse ancestral makeup of New Orleans' white population in the early 20th century, Italian Americans were among those that were a part of the mix. Unlike New York, feelings toward Italian Americans in New Orleans were extremely hostile and if not for their cordial relations with the city's African American, that hostility wouldv'e never boiled over to the mass lynching of Italian Americans. So yeah, when it comes to relations between African and Italian Americans, New Orleans and New York were and still are completely different as one was where they'd shared a common experience and the other was where they never did.

Lol so funny that people act like you can pick a distant city in another state and somehow make it NYC's "6th borough". Yeah sure I'm sure sending down all our snowbirds will completely envelop the city in NYC culture such that it becomes a sixth borough.

It's asking what places share economic and social connection to NYC. Just like the Cambridge is considered to be Boston by many but an annexation vote would fail spectacularly.
