Sydney has such great density - it puts all the other cities (with maybe the exception of Melbourne) to shame.

Melbourne will never look as dense because we were planned.

same with Adelaide but it looks fairly dense. I guess its the grid kind of layout that Adelaide was based on that gives the impression

The topography of Wellington forces density, isn't that great!

A circle of sprawl. Hopefully the plan of 30,000 in Central City by 2026 will add density.

NYC is in a league of it's own. I think what he means is that a city with smaller, streets that aren't complely straight and some hills is always going to look denser than a city with wide straight streets like Melbourne.
