Hong Kong is surely impressive. But it's a very crammed and rather small place. It doesnt have much choice but to go up. NYC is just a monster in its own league. All those HK towers spread out over the size of Manhattan, wont come close to the density of New York. NYC has still got so much room for densification in the big section between Lower and Upper Manhattan.

It's even more massive than other top skylines. (if you will not look at height)
Are you referring to this photo below? When making comments such as this, feel free to quote the post and repeat the image. What we don't like is when someone repeats a whole block of photos that are on the same page just to quote something someone has said without deleting the photos from the post. We don't need to see them again on the same page when all we have to do is scroll up.

I hope you are aware of the fact that Hongkong has over 2400 buildings taller than 100m compared to Newyork's 800 buildings.

If that's actually true, it will be a dead heat once the current crop of towers under construction top out.

Chicago is standing still next to Toronto. Chicago might eventually drop out of the top 10 skylines in the world while Toronto breaks into it.

Building activity is bound to pick up in Chicago eventually. What we might see is Toronto pull up even within the next 4-5 years followed by parity for a while. Then again, if Chicago doesn't start building Toronto might just zoom right on by. Top 10 would be nice, but it's looking quite daunting given what's happening in Asia. Top 12 might be a more realistic target.

I got used to replying without quoting pictures in the Asian thread.
People there doesn't like quoting images. (specially because most images are spam)

It does get annoying when people repeat a lot of images that are already on the same page, but it's nice not to have to back up 2-3 pages to see what somebody is talking about. Also, if you are referring to one photo out of a set a photos, just cut and paste the one that you are referring to.

Tall makes anything denser if the height goes with already pre-existing density.

I don't know who changed the title. It wasn't me just so you know. Maybe it was my boss. The title was kind of fun, but for people for which English is a second language, it's important to know the proper usage of words.
