Not just 5 areas with their own generally recognizable demographics, density levels, architecture, etc., but specifically how would you analogize different areas of your city to the NYC boroughs, if you had to?

For Reno, NV, I'd say:
Manhattan: downtown/east of downtown
Brooklyn: Midtown
Bronx: north/west periphery of downtown, maybe west to Keystone and north to I-80
Queens: south Reno, maybe down to Moana Ln. and especially east of Virginia
Staten Island: North Valleys

Manhattan- Center City & University City
Brooklyn- Combine NoLibs, Graduate Hospital, Queen Village, Fishtown, Brewerytown, Manayunk and a few others
Queens- Combine Passyunk Square, Italian Market, Newbold, Port Richmond, Oxford Circle, and a few others
Bronx- Southwest Philly, Nicetown, Strawberry Mansion, Gray's Ferry, farther West Philly, and other bad parts of North Philly
Staten Island- Far Northeast Philly, Girard Estates, and other suburban-ish areas full of the few Trumpies and Republicans left

Brewerytown does not belong in "Brooklyn" and "farther West Philly"( which includes Overbrook Farms and Wynnefield) does not belong in the " Bronx". Everything else I agree with.

I'd change that a little..

Pittsburgh

Manhattan: Golden Triangle + Strip District
Brooklyn: Lawrenceville + Oakland + East End
Queens: North Side
Bronx: Uptown + South Side
Staten Island: West End

You do realise that even Manhattan is quite diverse. Midtown is very different to Greenwich Village and SoHo, for example.

I'm curious where you would put Brewerytown then? Also, you are right in the fact that further West Philly does not ALL belong in the Bronx. I was more thinking of the rougher parts past University City and above Baltimore Ave. Will Smith's West Philly if you will.

Here goes nothing:

Manhattan: Fenway, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, the West End, the North End, the Financial District, Downtown Crossing, Chinatown, the Theater District, Bay Village, and the South End.

Brooklyn: Allston, Cambridge, and Somerville.

Bronx: South Boston, Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan.

Queens: East Boston, Chelsea, Everett, and Revere.

Staten Island: Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Hyde Park, and West Roxbury.

For Los Angeles I would do:

Manhattan as Downtown Central LA to West LA minius the Hollywood hills (Santa Monica Mountains)
Brooklyn as San Fernando Valley plus Hollywood hills.
Queens as San Gabriel Valley since it's similar in size and population to The SFV.
Bronx as South LA
Staten Island as South Bay

All in all this area is close to NYC in population 7-8 million people I added the SGV, and the south bay as it wouldn't really make sense to cut any of the other places in half.
