It is a superb photo of New York City! If we could see lower Manhattan to the left, it would be mind blowing!

Honk Kong and New York are #1 for now, but both cities will be eclipsed by upcoming Chinese (and Arab) cities in a couple of years.

I see them being eclipsed by Shenzhen and Shanghai, but not by any Arab cities. Maybe Dubai in a longer time span.

There are practically no major projects in Shanghai besides white Magnolia. Shenzhens boom won't last forever and obviously neither will NYC's but I'd say both cities would be pretty even.

Long term, I see New York, Shenzhen, Mumbai, and Dubai being contenders for the top spot. Each is the alpha city of a huge block: the United States, China, India, and the Arab world respectively. There might be others, but these 4 will have a huge amount of momentum behind them for a long time to come. Any boom they have won't be short lived. Dubai won't come together in my eyes for another 10-20 years, but it has the potential to be a show stopper.

Pudong lacks density , it's really evident , more skyscrapers and highrises around the big Three and it would be magnificent !
