Your city's twin districts in other cities

I’ve lived in both London and Paris and often try and explain to people who know one but not the other how districts in each city “mirror” each other.

Here’s what I reckon

The Marais = Soho
Montparnasse = Islington
Champs-Elysées = Oxford Street
16th = Mayfair
République/Oberkampf = Shoreditch
Belleville = Dalston/Hackney
Canary Wharf = La Défense
Montmartre = Primrose Hill
Châtelet-Les Halles = Kings Cross St Pancras
Pigalle = Camden
Quartier Latin = Bloomsbury

What do other people think?

Can anyone do other pairings, eg London/New York?

I dont know London too well, so someone need to fill me in on this.

But from the top of my head i'd say:

Champs-Elysées = Oxford Street = 5th Avenue
Canary Wharf = La Défense = Downtown
The Marais = Soho = Soho, New York
Belleville = Dalston/Hackney = Lower East Side
Brixton = Harlem
