I have family that lives in German village in Columbus and I love the area. It is a beautiful neighborhood with amazing historical homes and parks. I love the brick streets and find the area very friendly and charming.
It is easy to walk to several restaurants and shopping.

Do you have any favorite neighborhoods that sound similar?

For Boston it'd have to be all over downtown & DTX, the North End, Beacon Hill, Back Bay and the South End.

Default Philly: Society Hill, Old City

Hard to beat Philly's Society Hill and Old City. Go to street view at: https://www.google.com/maps/place/So...6b2c1bf8?hl=en. Put yourself in the middle of this area and within a 15 minute walk you have the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross house, Benjamin Franklin's house, Elfreth's Alley, City Tavern, etc. etc.

I'll third Boston. I find Beacon Hill my favorite along with the North End right behind.

Pretty much all of Lower Manhattan, but I love the general area around south street seaport, the extreme lower east-ish side, where the streets are cobblestone, and some of the oldest bars in the city are.

An honorable mention to Old Town Alexandria, VA which has some nice streets and very well-preserved neighborhoods.

I love that area too, especially around Wall Street/Court Street.

Downtown Upper Marlboro here in PG County
Capitol Hill
Anacostia

Honorable mention:

Lower Manhattan
