I don't understand this.
If New York does not have an extremely dense core, then no place in north America does.

Well, we invented the building type, so it's not all that surprising.

New York and Chicago both have more than one extremely dense core.

Claiming the high rise as an invention of a particular country is rather dubious to say the least. Practically every city of size in Canada, the US, Mexico, Brazil, and Australia started building high rises in the late 1800s. It was simply where the technology of the day had led. It was the culmination of advances made in many disciplines from many nations.

The US has more high rises simply because it was, by far, the most populous nation building them.

The US invented the first steel frame highrise. Therefore it invented what is today known as the skyscraper. Its really quite simple and I don't see why you try to circumvent that fact.
