Central Park in Autumn by Joe Schulz, on Flickr



The big difference between Kuala Lumpur's "central park" from the other two is that it is a real jungle, which is part of KL's green belt.
The jungle is dotted with civil servant housing estates over the low hills.

My friend lives there with his family and he told me horrifying stories of poisonous snakes, fearless macaques, and mosquitoes the size of his thumb!

New York around 1940-1950 still is the best ever:

https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=ne...12&type=714647

All the classic buildings there and none of the ugly glass boxes build after. Modern skyscrapers lack the classic elegance of these buildings. In fact, I love the details of classical and art deco buildings while modern architecture lacks the same sense of scale as they look like blobs of glass lacking a sense of scale since the details and individual windows in the ESB, for example, show how big it is:

Incredible how dominant it was at the time as well: of the top 100 tallest buildings in the world more than half where in New York in 1940. And 90% of these buildings were in the US.

Asia today has tons of highrises with no elegance. New York in 1930's, 1940's to 1950's remains the best skyline ever and unlikely to be surpassed by those clumps of glass boxes poorly integrated into a urban landscape. In Dubai it doesn't even look like a real city but just a clump of glass boxes and needles dropped over the desert. New York around 1950 was a city of 12 million people with a gradual increase of density reaching peaks in downtown and midtown while the architecture of the buildings was consistent with one another since both art deco and neoclassical styles integrated themselves well.
