    Use "the lifestyle", not "the living style".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or use "the cost of living".

    That doesn't mean "lifestyle" or "style of life".

    No. But the OP didn't explicitly tell us what he/she really wanted to say. We are just guessing. It's more likely that the OP wanted to say "lifestyle" but it could be the cost of living that he/she actually wanted to say.

    No, I didn't want to say "cost of living".

    See above. I'm sure we've told you before that if you use the full name "New York City", you must capitalise all three words.

    Note that although they're all now grammatically correct, a native speaker would be unlikely to use any of them. I'd probably say:

    The lifestyle in New York and Las Vegas are similar.
    Fred does things in a similar way to Bruce.
    Fred does things the same way as Bruce.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Rover's suggestions are, of course, grammatically correct. The idea they express about New York and Las Vegas is not factually correct though. It's hard to think of two less-similar cities.
