If you read this blog at all, you may know that I've had trouble leaving my beloved city of New York after having moved to London last summer (side note: it's almost been a year since I've arrived here, which is cray.) I won't bore you with a list of the things that I slowly...noticed...don't...exist in London that do in New York in the same way that I won't bore you with a list of the lovely things in London that NY just doesn't have.
All of that being said, for anyone leaving New York there is no better advice I can give aside from this: don't try to find New York in other places because it doesn't exist.
This being said, there are neighborhoods with similarities and it's weird/fun to try to find and point them out. So without further ado, here's our list of New York 'hoods in LDN.
Piccadilly Circus/Leicester Square: Times Square
Angel: Murray Hill
Marylebone/Fitzrovia: West Village
Notting Hill: Greenwich Village
Camden: East Village
Brick Lane: Little Italy
Oxford Circus: Broadway SoHo
Old Bond Street: West Broadway SoHo
Soho Square: Tompkins Square Park
Primrose Hill: Park Slope
Shoreditch: Lower East Side
So, all you ex-New Yorkers, what say you? Does our list measure up?
