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

Long Island City, Downtown Brooklyn , Downtown Jamaica Queens, E 149th St & 3rd Ave The Bronx

University City, Philadelphia.

Cambridge for Boston, if it were actually part of Boston technically.

I tend to think of places as metros or urban areas, not cities, because that is kind of meticulous.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think construction has already began on this building (The Brooklyn Supertall). Or at the very least, prep/demo work has been underway for a while now.

Either way, this thing is not just a proposal anymore, it's happening and work is underway on it.

Every metro with multiple cities is going to have a second downtown.

Ithaca NY may be the smallest place that fits. Collegetown near Cornell University: https://www.google.com/maps/place/32...73fabc9f?hl=en

Why? It might be my New York centric thinking, but I always think of cities by the city proper, the metros tend to include areas that don't feel like the city proper at all. L

Same here. Sometimes I see people using the metro populations to describe how big a city is, but it's really the city proper populations that matter.
