For most of the 20th century, it was New York City that led the world in the construction of skyscrapers.

NYC has more skyscrapers than every country minus China and maybe UAE and a few others.

Manhattan alone probably has more skyscrapers than most continents, considering most places don't have many skyscrapers.
