Assunto:  what's it like?
 
Mensagem:  It could be that something else was implied, such as "What's it like (living in) downtown?'

 I see a difference here, a very subtle one to me:

What's downtown like? ( Please describe to me what downtown looks or feels like. )

What's it it like downtown? ( I assume we are talking about downtown in context, and that you live there but I don't. I want to hear about your experience living there.)

That's what I think, I don't know for sure.
