In regard to the proliferation of Bangkok photos, I would ask that you all to limit your posts to only photos that show most of a skyline at its best rather than pieces of a skyline and individual buildings. I don't want to have to voluntarily start deciding what should be post myself.

Dude, have you been to Shenzhen? I've been there 15 times and I wouldn't call it particularly dense at all, especially compared to Manhattan. There are very wide avenues and highways all over SZ and plenty of parks and green space as well. Shanghai is denser and Hong Kong even more so.

I've been there twice. Wide avenues do not mean the city is not dense. It is just better balanced than HK. And please do not call me dude.

To all: I'm not a big fan of Shenzhen, but this is now one of the best skylines indeed.

Shenzhen is not more dense than NYC. Manhattan is dense in its entirety and so are most parts of the other boroughs (i.e. Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, etc.). Only Hong Kong can rival NYC in terms of density. Shenzhen has developed rapidly in the last decades but still has a long way to catch up to NYC and HK.

I don't think that's necessarily the case. It depends on what that density is made up of as far as people being able to have most of their needs met in close proximity. It is better though when it means less of the human population encroaching on ecosystems and animal habitats. For instance, here in South Florida, if we go beyond the Urban Development Boundary and pave over the Everglades, we're screwing ourselves with the amount of fresh water that ecosystem stores.

Shenzhen and New york city is closer in density from a purely statistical viewpoint than most people think,Shenzhen,according to its own government a population of around 15 million living in an area of around 1950 sq km,which is about 7500 inh/sq km ,Nyc has 8.5 million people living in an area of around 789 sq km with a population density of around 10600 inh/sq km. New york seems to have a lead in the density department but it is not a very dramatic difference,and the difference is even smaller if you account of how many sparsely populated mountains Shenzhen includes in its area. So the real density is actually pretty equal between the two.

Toronto-Dominion Centre is going to look chic once they finish re-painting it black. You can see 1 of the towers is done already and looks as good as new.
