I was just speaking with a co-worker of mine how the DC neighborhood of Dupont Circle reminds me of Greenwich Village in Manhattan; this got me thinking about what other neighbors around the country remind you of a NYC 'hood (im sure this will not turn into a good thread, but whetev...)

It takes a whole bunch of places combining together to equal NYC. LOL

From my experience:
Midtown=DT San Francisco(on a much smaller scale of course-LOL)
Times Square=Las Vegas Strip
Downtown=Chicago Loop
Lower East Side=Downtown LA
Lower West Side=West LA+Santa Monica
Upper East Side=Pacific Height, SF
Upper West Side=Hollywood Hills, LA
Queens=Oakland/East Bay
Brooklyn=Baltimore
Bronx=South Side Chicago
Northern New Jersey=Silicon Valley+Northern VA
Long Island=Orange County, CA
Westchester County=Lake County,IL
Fairfield County=Marin County,CA + San Mateo County, CA

Northern NJ is home to more F500s than anywhere except Manhattan itself. Its suburban, for the most part, its a very wealthy & highly educated region, very racially and ethnically diverse and home to immigrants from all over the world.

A lot like SV.

That's my verdict.

Brooklyn and Bronx have undergone huge revesals as far as crime. Brooklyn still has grit but its seen a lot of development and has attracted hipsters and a new wave of upscale urbanites. Ive noticed that in Baltimore too.

The Bronx has its rough spots, but its much improved and has lots of bright spots now imo. Same goes for the South Side of Chicago.

These comparisons may be rather broad, but its not really insulting to any of these places.

NJ is the cheapest option in metro NY. I can tell you aren't from here. Westchester is the most expensive, then Long Island, then NNJ.

Wrong.

Fairfield County, CT is more expensive than all of them.
