Me thinks people need to actually go to NYC. Overall Sydney is nothing like Manhattan. Sydney art deco is more comparable in size and style to the Shanghai Bund. NYC veers more toward neo-Gothic.

Besides, the label that art deco=NYC is so simplistic. Art deco is universal.

The lack of Georgian and neo-Gothic architecture in Australia is depressing. I think the only city in our country with a good selection of beautiful historical buildings is Melbourne.
You can't discount Sydney and Adelaide in that regard. Sydney's got a substantial amount of historic buildings, although overall plainer than Melbourne's, are still damn impressive. Adelaide too, punches well above its weight (compared to Brisbane, which developed in the 20th century).
