Interesting points- but I wonder if you would consider the following question:
Which burdens our planet more: A highly compact, vertically dense city of millions occupying a few square miles, or the same millions spead out along throughways in energy-expensive suburbs?
To my mind, the well-organized city is a gift, generally, to humanity and the natural environment; the problems with the "deathtrap" came from certain unique design mistakes, inadequate systems of protection, and historical and political problems.
At a very abstract level, of course, those political problems may connect with the thought you are expressing...
