I suppose you'll only get border cities for answers here. But I think a better way of looking at this is regionally, since state boundaries are pretty arbitrary and many states have more than one identity/flavor.

I was about to say the same thing.
LI, NYC, and Jersey are alike in many ways as opposed to NY state to NYC.

NY state is more like PA state, in a way (I can't say VT because VT is very unique) Pittsburgh = Buffalo (in similarity)

Actually, it depends on what part of Upstate NY you are talking about. The Southern Tier is more like PA. The Capital District is somewhat like Massachusetts and Connecticut. Northern NY is more like that part of Canada. WNY and Western PA are kind of similar, but with a Canadian influence in WNY.

True, NY state overall has a very diverse landscape.
So i don't now where to pinpoint it's similar cousin as a whole,

Buffalo's area is similar to Pittsburgh area, as i said..
Nyack/Nanuet/New City area is Like Bergen county, NJ
You took the words out of my mouth with the state capitol...

actually, you took all the words out of my mouth

NYC isn't like NJ or upstate NY, lol. NJ and upstate NY aren't that much different, so the city is nothing like each area.

And I'm so tired of hearing "Jersey"--you aren't from a small island in Europe. We don't say we live in York. People need to stop being so lazy and say the extra word lol.

look where this is coming from.
Jersey City - Manhattan .. very similar
Is there anything in LI that is similar or merely similar to Manhattan?

To be honest, LI isn't as similar to NYC as North Jersey is... both aren't exactly alike of course but, LI is more suburban than most parts of North Jersey.
LI is like South Jersey (the shore) if anything
