Keep the coasts separate....they each have their own unique vibe.

I would say Portland and Seattle are the most similar to the Northeastern cities. Maritime, grey, cold (though not as cold as the Northeastern cities). People wearing black, wool, raincoats, umbrellas and drinking coffee. Progressive.

If you look at the American city truly creating its image in the 19th century, particularly when industrializaiton, transporation, and immigration set the model in motion, only one city outside the northeast quadrant of the nation paralleled the urban experience and urban feel of the cities of the northeast and the middle west:

San Francisco.

It alone throughout the urbanized south, southwest, and west took on the role of size, importance, and function that made it a blood brother of sorts to cities like New York, Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia.

From a historical perspective that is true. Does it hold up to that today?

Though decidedly Angelino/Californian, Koreatown is pretty dense and urban in a "traditional" East Coast sense.

Here are some pics: prettyugly.: Ktown, we meet again
