What part of New York outside of New York City gives you a "borough" feel?

Well, some people refer to Miami as the 6th borough because so many people from NYC either move to or visit Miami. Other than that, if you're looking for another borough feel I would say Yonkers does have parts that are very "urban" with tall buildings and whatnot. Yonkers also has some project houses that look just like the ones in the city. Plus, Yonkers is a very walkable city as well.

If you're talking about other cities in NY but outside of NYC then there's places like Albany, Rochester, Buffalo that actual cities with skyscrapers and what not. Those are all upstate though.

Miami? Really?


I would say Boston or Philly. Both cities have smilar architecture to NYC's. Also, the European influence.

I took the bus from the Bronx to New Rochelle and couldn't tell where the Bronx ended and Mount Vernon started. I don't get that going from Queens to Nassau.

No way you can tell where the Queen/Nassau Border... Eastern Queens and Western Nassau are identical even certain neighborhoods go between Queens and Nassau... It's probally the same for Bronx and Westchester too... The 6th borough is varied... Some people use it as a reference to Yonkers, Nassau, Miami, San Juan, Santo Domingo, Jersey City...
I think the 6th, 7th, 8th borough would be Jersey City, Yonkers, and Nassau...

Boston and Philly and the Upstate cities are there own cities with a different culture...

the boarder line of queens and nassua are exactly the same , the only reason you know you are in nassau is because of the street lights and street signs.
