I don't understand the question. I guess they could all be confused for each other, if you're sitting in a BK eating a whopper, or caught in a rush hour traffic jam, or waiting on hold on an 800-number, or watching cable TV, which is how most Americans spend most of their life.

NYC- no comparison, but maybe parts of Chicago or Toronto even though they don't come close
Philadelphia- a little bit of Boston, a bit of Baltimore
Miami- Fort Lauderdale
Denver - Calgary and a bit of Kansas City
Phoenix- LA/Inland Empire
Atlanta-Charlotte
Dallas- OKC
Houston- can't think of another large bayou city to be honest, it doesn't look like New Orleans
Chicago- Milwaukee
Seattle- Portland or Vancouver
San Francisco- nowhere, no place looks or feels like San Francisco

Phoenix-itself perhaps, or maybe Palm Springs, CA???
Atlanta-itself
Dallas-Houston
Houston-Dallas, Los Angeles

No in bold. They do not look anything alike. Nor do they feel like anything alike. In fact, Dallas is like Houston. I can't think of another Southern Plains city that looks like Dallas. It cannot be mistaken for OKC. If you said Fort Worth, I'd agree.

Chicago


Denver
Atlanta
Seattle


Miami
Phoenix
Houston

San Francisco doesn't match any of these.

NYC: Nothing, although it has decent commonality with Philly and a bit with Chicago
Philly: Mix of Baltimore, Boston, and a little Chicago
Chicago: Philly is closest in the U.S. (mix of Philly and Toronto is probably better)

Miami: Aesthetics, other cities in Florida. In terms of other aspects, nowhere
Denver: Mix of KC and SLC
Phoenix: Nowhere else, but a much smaller Los Angeles is kind of reasonable; I'd argue sort of Las Vegas too (away from the Strip)
Houston: Dallas
Dallas: Nowhere else,but Houston is probably closest (feel is fairly different IMO)
Atlanta: Mix of Charlotte and Los Angeles
Seattle: Portland more than Vancouver
San Francisco: Nowhere else; it's its own thing for better or worse

Obviously it could be mistaken for Ft Worth...they are in the same metro that all bleeds together. Dallas is very much like a massive version of OKC. Many of the same look and feel just in a larger metro and bigger city. They are similar in almost every way, this is why there is such a deep disdain between OK and TX. Nobody wants to admit to being like the other.

You are WAY off the beam on this OKC - Dallas thing you are spouting.
