And density is why Chicago looks and feels smaller than Los Angeles. At the metro level, LA is a lot denser in population and built environment than Chicago. Outside the core of Chicago, density drops off and places begin to look and feel like "Small Town, USA."

Well you're wrong, LA and Chicago are nearly identical in density from the cores going outwards, LA than exceeds Chicago exponentially after that.

Silence the Nimby's and the Coastal Commission, and allow unrestrained mid-rise, high-rise development along the coast from Malibu to Laguna, and turn it into a Miami/Dade County type of place, and there's a couple more million people right there!
I would rather die than see the Laguna area turned into Miami style CRAP high rises all lined up in a row in order to fulfill some crazy vision of overtaking NYC. Besides, you don't seem to understand the topograhy of coastal southern California. It is not just slightly above sea level as it is in Florida, all flat. Thank goodness. It is very hilly and not suited for endless rows of high rises except, of course, in places like Santa Monica.

It will never happen as long as the NYC has the ability to add nearby major cities to it's metro area.
