Most of these posted aren't really a "Second Downtown."

Buckhead is the one that stands out the most for me. First thing I thought of.

NYC obviously has midtown and downtown and those feel totally like two separate "downtowns" as well.

Depending on how "downtown" is defined, Chicago has the Loop, which is the traditional business downtown. Then there is River North where Michigan Ave runs through and the Hancock building is. Most people consider both of these areas to be part of "downtown," but they are separated by the river, so they are two distinct areas.

Could Wilshire be considered LA's 2nd Downtown? If not, what is? I know Hollywood was mentioned but I don't really see that.

Hollywood is a major employment center. Haven't you noticed all those office buildings? Netflix just moved into an entire 14-story office building in Hollywood.

Old Ballard definitely has a downtown-y feel to it and it's within Seattle city limits.
