Shanghai really is a huge place. When Dave visited back in February he said that it makes NYC look like a tiny village. I just could not imagine this. But I can clearly see it now. If you took all the boroughs of New York and built all the buildings up about 30 stories then maybe they would be comparable cities. NYC has the uniqueness of having so many tall buildings right next to one another. In Shanghai, so far, space has been left, so when you look at a small section NY seems greater, but Shanghai has far far more tall buildings, but since they do not touch one another, they dont look as tall.
