The flags kinda give it away.

And the cars, street signs, shopfronts, snow.

Looks nice though wherever it is.

Looks like a dump. Disgusting signage ruins the facades of the nice old buildings. Sidewalks too narrow. Poor street lighting quality. Not the greatest example of a English High Street and you can't compare that run of the mill place to Scarsdale, one of the richest places in the USA. You're moving the goalposts.

Those look like suburban high streets rather than true city center or town high streets.

Most British cities have a modern shopping area like this

P5309767 by Cardiff123, on Flickr

Or revitalised streets like this

Historical cities are more like this

What about New Rochelle , is that nice too? I've never been, but I have relatives there.

It's not that nice. It's a city.

It wasn't meant to be a comparison of what's better. It was to show similarities of suburban high streets I know in the US and the UK. But for the cars, I think they look a lot alike.
