Philadelphia is a lot more comparable to montreal than brooklyn

Brooklyn lacks a large commercial core thanks to its proximity to manhattan
Brooklyn has 3x the population density of Montreal
Brooklyn generally has taller brownstones than Montreal and more apartment buildings

Philadelphia and Montreal both have older commercial cores with office architecture from different eras
Both have similar population densities
Both have a fair amount of nice rowhouses
Both have lots of modest rowhouses
Both have old wealthy single family neighborhoods
Both suffered due to competition with a more dynamic neighboring city for many decades
