A similar vibe? Of course no city has a similar vibe. No city has a similar vibe to New York, Washington, Seattle, San Fran, LA, etc. No city is alike. I don't see, however, how you can make the claim that New Orleans is the most unique city in the U.S... What's your case? I bet most people here could make the same type of case for many cities in the U.S. I know I could make an excellent one for Boston. I know many people could make one for NYC or Philly. You could also make the argument that Seattle or Portland, OR is more unique. How about Las Vegas? How many cities have the "vibe" that Las Vegas has? I could go on....

Anyway, This thread is about which city has the most varied and unique neighborhoods, not which city has the most uniqe vibe (even then, I don't know if I'd say New Orleans). I think no American city has the variety of distinct or unique neighborhoods that NYC does. After that, I would say San Fran, Boston, Chicago, D.C. And a few others in no particular order.

No one is trying to say New Orleans isn't very unique, but in My experience many cities have a larger number of varied and different neighborhoods than NO.

after moving back to Pittsburgh from two different cities, I feel that this city has many upon many interesting neighborhoods. You go from a east coast style row home neighborhood, cross a street, and all of a sudden you are in a completely different neighborhood with victorian houses and tree lined streets.

The whole city is made up more of neighborhoods that are each their own small town. I lived in another city where it was more like a large city,and the neighborhoods changed slowly along what part of the grid you were in. Pittsburgh is completly opposite.
