It depends what you consider 'New York'. I mean a lot of NYC's classical architecture was influenced largely by Europe, particularly the Gothic Revival. It's simply inaccurate to say that Melbourne is more 'grand' in terms of older architecture, as Sydney pushes above its weight. It is home to a number of beautiful old buildings.
