What do you mean? In terms of population? importance? or just skyline?

It will never have skyline like New Yorks, the two cities are laid out too differently. LA's density is more spread out New Yorks and not concentrated nearly as much as NYC and never will be.

In terms of importance to the world, LA is already so important. Los Angeles is the capital of the entertainment industry and is the counterpart to NYC in so many ways.

Maybe.

Los Angeles is getting denser by the day because the population is growing rapidly (with many Latino immigrants--legal and illegal) but with the maximum geographic reaches already reached. I'm guessing that Los Angeles city will be as dense as Manhattan 100 years from now. Hehehe :D. That is because Manhattan is just extremely dense. It would take years for even downtown L.A. to be as dense. But if your asking when the entire urbanized area of Greter Los Angeles (Los Angeles Consolidated Metropolitan Area) will be as dense as Manhattan, then never is the answer.

Yes LA is the centre of the entertainment industry but it is no way a counterpart to NYC on a worldwide basis. But locally yes because it's the most important city in the West Coast. Internationally NY is still more important to LA.

If comparing everyting....Maybe
but just the skyline, only Chicago is worthy of comparing with NYC in USA. LA skyline isn't as tall, dense and sprawl as NYC and Chicago. :)

It Did not actually take that long for los angeles skyline to be the way it is now only like 50 years and it stoped around the 1990s New york took like 100 years. well the building industry is staring again
so in antother 50 years we will be seeing some skyscrapers in L.A

It never will surpass NYC skyline at least in our lifetime, just look at the earthquake activities in LA, you will understand why! :)

Never will LA reach NY's scraper density. In fact it will even not reach Chicago's level! But I actually like the density and look of today's LA skyline.

BTW, Joey, that pic of NYC is only the midtown part of skyline and LA skyline still has nothing on it! :runaway:

You do the comparison on skyline, skyscraper and density on the following two cities: :)

None, each skyline is unique in it's own way. Though to me, HK is the only skyline that can rival NY :)

It actually does not matter to me no matter how LA scenery with cluster of buildings resembles the scenery of NYC.
United State is just so powerful, rich and attractive that no country would match on the same level, and always viewed with lots of envy of other nations. :cheers:
