I am confused about the reason why London is not as vertical as NY and other hubs across the globe. Though the aerial views truly depict its beauty

Flight paths into London City Airport and London Heathrow limit how tall buildings can go , explains why the only structure over 300m in London is the shard. But then I am only beginning to stratch the surface.

Is being vertical necessarily a good thing?

You can thank Queen Victoria for the height limits imposed in London in the 1880s following construction of Queen Anne's Mansions (second phase) which overlooked her garden parties at Buckingham Palace! Queen Vic was not amused. The rest is history.

The London Building Act height limits were enacted in the 1880s *just when NYC's buildings began seriously rising in height) thanks to Queen Victoria who was not amused when Queen Anne's Mansions Phase II was constructed in the 1870s fronting onto St James Park and which could overlook the Queen's garden parties. The rest is history.

Not unlike the Washington DC height limit that was set in 1899 after the Cairo Hotel went up a little too high for the fainthearted in Dupont Circle. While being raised a bit since, it has never yielded to high rise temptation.
