How does the dining in NYC (and especially ethnic dining) compare with Boston. I feel Boston is lacking in the ethnic department, especially when it comes to Filipino, Indonesian, and Korean cuisines.

What's the point of this thread? You're comparing the largest and perhaps most diverse city in North America to a much smaller and less diverse city. It's no contest that NYC will win.

Yea there's really no comparison and no point. Boston is one of the better dining cities in the US and you can find plenty of good ethnic foods, but it's not anywhere near NYC.

NYC's clam chowder is markedly more flavorful -and authentic. (That said, I like New England style, too. Just not quite as much.)

How does seafood (supposedly one of Boston's strengths) in these two places compare?

I guess you could give Boston the nod in terms of native seafood due to lobsters but it's not all that different. A lot of the local fish/crustaceans are similar. Great oysters and clams in both areas.

New England Clam Chowder is far better than Manhattan in my opinion. Not a fan of the NYC style.

As a native Bostonian that's not a big fan of New York City that loves, reminisces, and craves New England food I have to honestly admit in the most unbiased way that it's ridiculous to compare Boston to New York City, it's just no contest. The only thing I would give a nudge to is Boston has a better Little Italy than the shrinking one in Manhattan. That aside Boston has Italian in the 5 boroughs, Long Island, and Jersey to compete with.
