in NY there is huge Central Park and there ARE many lowrises as well.

Any city in Canada, the US, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Japan, South Korea (to name a few) has that potential.

Tsim Sa Tui [neighborhood in the foreground of Victoria Harbor in the quoted picture below] is totally dense. I do not know what your definition of density is. Hong Kong easily beats Shanghai in terms of density. Only Manhattan in my opinion can compete with Hong Kong in this department.

Juan Pablo, from where are you quoting the huge Hong Kong pic by Yellow Fever? I've been telling people to downsize these huge photos here because we have too many people wanting to post them and they slow down the threads. If Yellow Fever is doing this here, we are going to have to get together on this.

But about >12 floors buildings, it's almost impossible to give an accurate number for NY or HK. It's like counting the number of leaves in a forest . So,even cities like NY or HK, Emporis database may probably forget many buildings.
Does that mean that for the year 2011 there are 22998 buildings in the city in total?

I don't think HK and even NY can match Shanghai. The first is tiny and the second has got only Manhattan in fact. While Shanghai is all big, high and dense.

Dense but no skyline to speak of. The densest skylines would be cities with skyscrapers packed tightly together built right out to the street. Cities that build 'towers in the park' have less dense skylines.

Kathmandu looks so much dense and large for a city of under one million inhabitants.

Everything seems to be dense except for probably Abu Dhabi or Bangkok. Bangkok is massive but not dense...

Manila's density are concentrated in its CBDs though there are also concentration of high-rise outside it mainly residential.

It does have multiple clusters.

It's density are primarily concentrated in the downtown and midtown areas. Downtown such as those in Manila, Makati and The Fort. Midtown such as Mandaluyong, Ortigas, Pasig and San Juan.

Nah, downtown abu dhabi is pretty dense too.. especially in recent yrs.. true, it is not that big, but it is dense.. maybe on the lower scale of dense..

As for Bangkok, it looks terrible, lots of congestion everywhere.. and its like canned sardines..
