Honestly,

D.C. doesn't have much in common with NYC or Atlanta.

DC and NYC are in the urban tier while Atlanta is in the suburban with a downtown office park tier. You can't really compare cities between these tiers.

Nice pick. DC is unique and is very different from any US city due to height restrictions. At street level it looks more like NYC than Atlanta. Thats just my opinion but it seems that everyone wants to cop out and stay on the fence.

What are your thoughts?
D. C. makes me think more of Memphis, Tennessee or New Orleans, Louisiana.

Memphis or New Orleans? You must only be thinking in terms of having a majority Black population in the city proper; otherwise, DC isn't anything like those two cities at all.

Demographically, Atlanta. Built environment, none of them. Culture, none of them except maybe the Black culture which is similar to Atlanta.

That's why I said Atlanta. It's nothing like NYC, but it shares a couple of traits with Atlanta. Still, it's a bizarre comparison.
