I say New York is the king of NIMBYs for exactly the reasons you state. It's a city where large skyscrapers exists in large numbers, and people are still outraged that they can be built. At least in other places the NIMBYs have somewhat of an argument. Here, they are just absurd.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
