I stand corrected and am quite surprised. I still don't want to breathe the air there, and I still don't want to have to find my way around town there. I could see the brown cloud from 80 miles to the east when I last travelled through. I'll venture that ugly places make people feel less safe, I know that's probably true for me.

That's about where the resemblance ends. The vibe is totally different in the two cities. For starters, the weather and topography are completely unalike.

Nice thread.

Philadelphia-Baltimore
Miami-Santa Monica (which actually isn't it's own city)
Minneapolis-St. Paul (the easiest pair )
Dallas-Ft Worth
Richmond (VA)-Raleigh
Albany-Harrisburg
Annapolis-Newport (RI)
Cleveland-Detroit
Washington DC-Boston-San Francisco (on the outside all 3 are very unique, but deep down share a lot in common--heavily liberal, similar economies, extreme cost-of-living, tons of history etc.)
Seattle-Portland
Pittsburgh-Buffalo-Cincinnati
Charleston (SC)-Savannah(GA)
Louisville-Nashville
Columbus-Indianapolis
Atlanta-Charlotte
Chicago-Milwaukee (but on different scales)
College Park (MD)-El Dorado (yes, the utopian city of gold )

There's more, but that's all I can think of. For the record NYC, LA, and Chicago don't have twins.

I think Pasadena, TX is Pasadena California's "evil" twin.

(...just a joke, no offense intended Pasadena, TX!)

Atlanta and Charlotte are certainly not twins...the two cities look nothing alike. They don't even look related.

New York City - Los Angeles - Chicago are all fraternal twins IMO.

Philadelphia - Brooklyn/Queens - Baltimore are twins (give or take a few skyscrapers).

I actually thought that one was pretty valid...I see a lot of similarities. If you stuck me in Myers Park, I might think I was in Brookwood Hills or Haynes Manor, South Park = Brookhaven, and so on. The neighborhoods have a very similar feel.

I agree with everything on your list but Dayton - Oakland, maybe Dayton-Flint Michigan
