I live here, I've worked nights in the past, we're not BUSTLING at 4 AM, we're ACTIVE.

Any other city where you have similar population density and not much land will be similar, because to have that many people, you have to have many JOBS. And a lot of jobs require night-shift workers.
Pretty good logic.

Every American/european i ever known that have come here (and i know a lot of them) is mostly shocked at how open is everything all the time and how you can go get your fancy dinner at 4 am.
From what I understand, São Paulo is similar in this regard.

to an extent that's almost every major US City. Granted for Indianapolis, Nite life starts around 11:30ish and bars close at 3am, but other than that ALL of the Denny's, all of the Waffle Houses, all of the White Castles, Steak-n-shakes a few of the McDonalds and some mom and pops are open 24/7. Meijer, Kroeger and Walmart are all open 24/7/365 sans 36 hours the entire year and Walgreens is open 24/7/365 including christmas, it never closes. This is in a "20 Hour" city lol. A true 24 hour city is not about things being open and accessible because every major city has that, it's the vibe and the feeling, knowing that you can step out your house and know you are not alone on the street and at any given time, anything can jump off.

Believe it or not, the closest I've seen is Tel Aviv, Israel. Bars, restaurants, cafes, shops, all open until the wee hours, and people walking around and sitting on patios and decks at 2-3 am like it was the middle of the day.
