Is the city of Paris really that comparable to Manhattan in terms of density?

my impression from several visits is that residential Manhattan is far denser than Paris

Firstly there are no major parks on the scale of central park in Paris (bois de bologne and vincennes are outside the city limits).

Second, Paris just has a larger share by area of residential than manhattan does...Manhattan contains most of the urban area's office space...whereas in Paris huge concentrations like la defense are outside of the city limits.

The daytime population of Manhattan is 3.9 million, I wonder what the same figure would be for Paris.
