Hong Kong is 3x denser in skyscrapers and 8.5x denser in highrises.
To be fair, I think you'd just want to include just Manhattan then since that is the "skyline" people talk about. It has 59 sq km, but I'm not sure how many buildings. Including Queens and Staten Island definitely skews the data.

I'm quoting his statement below. Dhaka fall under the highrise category.

I live in Toronto right now and I have visited New York, London, Singapore and Dubai for your information. Dhaka has the highest density of buildings than any other city on this planet if highrise buildings are considered. I suggest you study a little more about Dhaka before making imbecile comments


Dhaka

It looks like suburban sprawl compared to Hong Kong

How about Sao Paolo?
IT definitely has bragging rights when it come to density.


We are not talking about height here, aren't we?

In that case, one might include only Hong Kong's Island northern coast and Kowloon peninsula.

Hong Kong has more of those really skinny towers while New York has fewer but much more massive buildings in it's skyline.

The height requirement for skylines was not specifically stated by the creator of this thread, that's why I mentioned Dhaka. This is not a skyline discussion thread, only about density. In Dhaka buildings taller than 13 storied ar considered highrise. New York and Hong Kong are on a different league, so I don't understand what made you think I was trying to make a comparison between cities.

If you think I have made a mistake here by commenting, you may delete all of my posts on this thread. I don't intend to troll or disrespect
