Little bit of this, little bit of that…

Via DCist comes this tool from Homethinking designed to tell a user what neighborhood in a new city is comparable to places in a more familiar locale. Looking at the two cities I’m most familiar with (DC and Pittsburgh), the tool seems to be rather hit-and-miss. Off the top of my head, here are a few parallels I would draw between the two cities… I’d offer explanations, but by the time I wrote those, it would probably be next month:

  • Georgetown = Shadyside
  • Columbia Heights = East Liberty
  • Friendship = Mount Pleasant
  • Adams Morgan = Strip District
  • U Street = South Side Flats
  • SW Waterfront = North Shore
  • Tenleytown = Oakland
  • Cleveland Park = North Oakland
  • Capitol Hill = Highland Park
  • Logan Park = Central Lawrenceville
  • Shaw = Upper Lawrenceville
  • Glover Park = Regent Square
  • Burlieth = Point Breeze
  • West End = Squirrel Hill North
  • Dupont Circle = Squirrel Hill South
  • Chinatown = Lower Hill District

I have a few other ideas, but they’re for neighborhoods I don’t know quite as well… anyone care to offer additional suggestions?
