Columbus has a fantastic/gentrified/urban inner city. I really do not see this in Jacksonville. Columbus might compare better with Charlotte in NC, however Charlotte lacks the progressive/hip/college vibe. Thus the only thing in the south that is like Columbus would be a mix of Charlotte and Raleigh.

New York-Atlanta (when you think of North or South these are probably the first cities you think of for each region
Philadelphia-Dallas- each have huge regional importance
Chicago-Houston- the number two cities that deserve more recogition from the number one city in their region, my opinion
Pittsburgh-Birmingham- does this need an explanation?
Inadianapolis-Charlotte- I have always heard these two are similiar, so for lack of a better reason here they are, I know that's a bad reason
Boston-Raleigh- I may catch heat fro this. Not because Raleigh is a thriving metropolis but each city has huge educational and research based economies I think that there are several similiarities, but Raleigh on a much smaller scale.
guesses:
New Orleans-Detroit
Jacksonville-Columbus
Nashville-Cleveland
I would also say Miami and New York City because of culture but I already used New York, so Miami is left out even though it is a huge southern city.

I believe the South offers no apologies for our big acres of land and suburban living. That's what makes the South the South historically. Atlanta may not have Center City but does Phily have Buckhead? Each city has its own unique flavor that offers the USA.

I personally wouldn't know. I wanted to make the case that Phily has Center City and Atlanta has Buckhead which makes it unique. I also forgot the underground, which maybe only Montreal has something similiar. But do you have pictures or descriptions of South Street? That would be a nice comparison.

Baltimore-New Orleans

Both have their own unique culture but are a bit in the dumps. Both gorgeous cities with large problems

That's interesting. I'd probably say Jacksonville-Milwaukee.

Yeah, both cities have huge city proper populations, nice urban cores. I don't know much about the economy of each but I'm sure that even that is similiar. Both are nice cities, perhaps underrated in each respected region.

The old historic part of Boston and Charleston S.C. are a perfect match .

With all of the huge skyscrapers in downtown Dallas, I would say it is the New York City of the South.
