There are three airports in Sao Paulo.. so thats why there might be some amount of height restrictions... in any case, no point in building super talls when there is no need for them?

There are more dense angles of Manhattan. I just don't have the time to look for them.

I think it's more dense where midtown meets Central Park. They really stack up there next to the park.

How about this?



Or Monaco?



They are getting seriously overbuilt too.

But why is everyone vying for this Densest City title? I don't think it's anything particularly to be proud of. I think considering everything...area; ave ht of skyscrapers, it would be in order:

1. Hong Kang
2. Sao Paulo
3. Nieuw York
4. Monaco
5. Mont St. Michel

Chicago is only ahead if one uses a fairly restrictive definition of high rise. By 35m (115ft) buildings, it's not even close. Toronto is miles ahead and has almost as many as Tokyo.

Agree, there's some great density in south America. South American cities in bold (Chinese cities are predictably not up to date):

World Top 10 by # of Highrises*

01 Hong Kong 7,896
02 New York 6,504
03 São Paulo 6,467
04 Singapore 4,764
05 Caracas 3,864
06 Moscow 3,754
07 Seoul 2,955
08 Rio de Janeiro 2,947
09 Tokyo 2,779
10 Toronto 2,511

* Highrise defined as 35m (115ft) of taller.

But we're talking density here. Downtown Chicago is taller and larger than Downtown Toronto, so its CBD is thus denser.

I call this thread "places I would never live in" It looks cool from above but I prefer open spaces.

I would throw a few others in there for North America. San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Baltimore, Vancouver. No illusions there. Outside NYC, those are probably the densest cities in the US/Canada.
