The true apples to oranges comparison in every way. I am sure you can eat some good Jewish food all over south beach.

New Yorkers tend to like the energy, urban format and scene of South Beach and I have heard it called (tongue in cheek) NY's 6th borough. Objective metrics can be established to compare one place to another but you take your life in your own hands if you dare compare yourself to NYC.
It's best to leave well enough alone and just collect the dollars that New Yorkers pour into South Beach each and every Winter season.

It's best if you see NYC for yourself and decide whether south beach is similar to it.

I'm familar with NY.

The similarities I've heard was the walkability, the amount of NYers, hailing cabs, clubs, etc. Not the weather.

No. Just cuz some people from New York move there, doesn't make it like New York. Climate, geography, architecture, vibe, culture is very different. I'd compare it to Atlantic City before NYC. Also, there's more Cubans than New Yorkers. Acere!

Drivers are equally bad, that's about it. I got chewed out by some woman in Miami Beach in January for running on the path along the ocean. So I guess you could say people are equally confrontational.

Other than a lot of NY transplants there are no similarities. Just to point out a few things..NY doesn't have the climate or the miles of coastal beach that South Beach has. The demographics are different and there is also a more relaxed pace in SB. Southbeach (like NY) is super unique in the U.S. and it looks and feels more like places like Jamaica, Hiati, DR, Cuba and Columbia while NY has a heavy Italian, Asian,African American, and Puerto Rican influence.
