US cities are primed for intensive and extensive development. Since very vague environmental planning, density is required for highrise developments. Like Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne are looking at this major density development.

NYC does major job in US. But Hong Kong does the world.

This is amazing comparison to Australia. Sydney snuck under Miami and Atlanta! Incredible!

I can assure you that San Francisco proper does not have more than Sydney. America does it differently based on their CSA MODEL. That would be like including Newcastle and Wollongong in Sydney, Geelong in Melbourne or GC and SC IN Brisbane.

Melbourne will arguably shoot past the likes of Detroit, Phoenix and Seattle. Remember Detroit is a dump in decline. Brisbane also would have alot more than all those cities up to about 18th rank if you took in it's CSA. NYC and Boston obviously is Bullshit as it becomes quite rural in parts of CT and PA but LA seems about right as the metro area is extremely extensive all the way to Long Beach in the south, east to San Bernadino and north to Oxnard. I can say with certainly that Melbourne and Sydney would definetely hold their own in the USA

Looking at google maps.

SF-SJ-Oakland is actually together in one metro.

I think how the US SSA goes by combining different metro areas that are apparently joined. Like New York, Bridgeport and Newark.

http://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=en...-8&sa=N&tab=wl

Dallas-Fort Worth see its combined to total of 6million? See how that map progresses mate. US cities are far much bigger than ours.
