I think Buenos Aries can give Shanghai a run for its money!

I'm not so sure. Shanghai's sea of high rises is more expansive, but it's not a dense as Manhattan. When you look at close up aerials, the high rises are far more tightly packed in Manhattan. Even in cities like Chicago, they're more tightly packed.

Shanghai has disparate areas (due to all the old buildings and planning laws) between the highrises, aswell as areas that are packed wall to wall:

I feel NYC is built to a more human scale than Shanghai. One reason I prefer NYC over Shanghai is because outside of the business districts you don't have so many highrises looming over head. Some people prefer Asia's 'skyscraper seas' when it comes to skylines. It might just be the American bias in me, but i don't. Chicago is probably the most massive skyline which I appreciate. Skylines like Shanghai (Puxi and beyond), Shenzhen, Bangkok, and to a lesser extent Guangzhou are just monsters.
