The only U.S. cities that can compare to Manhattan are Chicago, Philly, and San Francisco.

Does Midtown count for Atlanta - if so the edge to Atlanta, if not maybe LA

I noticed that too, but I can still tell the difference between LA & NY in movies. LA hasTrees lining the sidewalk, alot of beige buildings (not gray like Ny), Blue street signs...etc

One easy give away for scenes filmed in L.A. pretending to be New York is the sunnyness of the location. Yeah New York gets sunshine but the kind of bright sunshine seen in many of these scenes is just not seen in Manhattan especially where skyscrapers usually block out half the light even on a sunny day.

There's just something fake looking about the lighting on many of these scenes.

LA is a nice looking city, probably the best night time skyline in the country. ATL has a nice skyline at night too.
