This sounds like a rediculous question. But I feel that Miami has some similarities with LA with the celeb culture, large jewish population, and archetectural layout. And Queens has a similar Latino/Asian mix to large parts of LA.

So what cities on the East Coast are similar to Los Angeles.

Miami-Ft Lauderdale, and perhaps West Palm Beach.

Honestly I don't really think there is one, although Miami-Fort Lauderdale would come the closest.

Parts of Queens and western Nassau County have some similarities in layout, and a high Asian / hispanic population. Of course, there are more differences than similarities.

Miami as lot of one story store-front similar to LA. Very strong on the grid system like LA. Well the homes look nothing alike.

Most of the south east part of the US is very anti-grid system.

Trade out the palm trees for pines and you have Northern Virginia.

The upper middle class to rich areas of Miami have the most similar look to LA outside Southern Cali. Go further West and you're reminded that you're in the South.

I'd say DC.

The Maryland and Virginia suburbs have very large Central American, Mexican, Filipino and Vietnamese populations. You also have quite a few multi-level strip malls in the suburbs that are dominated by Central American, Korean and Vietnamese businesses. Walking in a mall in Montgomery County is about the same as walking in a mall in Orange County.

When my friend first moved here from LA a few years ago she kept saying how much the DC suburbs remind her of the suburbs of LA.

I agree with this. A suburb like Wheaton, Maryland could be plonked down somewhere in greater LA and no one would notice the difference.

Also, Washington D.C itself being a low-rise city bears a resemblance with LA in that way too since LA is mostly miles and miles of low-rise development.

Still, Miami is more like LA in feel than D.C. I don't know if anyone was around the last time LA got a foot of snow.
