Again, you have it backward. Would, if they were allowed to build. SF has crazy restrictions, and NYC is only recently opening up to more development. The issue is stifling of density, not density itself. Tgese places became dense because they were popular, exactly as we should. But we'll probably get bogged down by good-enough politics as you seem to be espousing a logically backwards argument.

Density means a place is desirable, not that density made it so. Density does not drive up costs, it stabilizes them in a in demand location.
