Embracing your inner somethings

Quotable phrase: "...embrace their inner Manhattans..."
The new Sohos” by Les Christie, CNN/Money, introductory blurb.
Usage: “Western U.S. cities, once bastions of low rise construction and single-family homes, are beginning to embrace their inner Manhattans …” [color font mine]
Recasts cliché: embrace your inner self

Thoughts: I like it. It's a rephrasing of a cliché, which means the reference is familiar but the use is unique.
