ABR, I think the key work here is "area". If we were talking about New York City density vs. the city of Los Angeles density, then I would completely agree with you. But, clicking on the Census Data link. The LA area, according to them, includes Long Beach and Anaheim and the New York Area includes Newark, New Jersey and part of Connecticut.
We don't have any maps to compare but consider that LA does have a good amount of single-family homes and there is also a good amount apartments too. Now consider how much open space there is in LA compared to the New York area (outside of the city). LA is nothing but people in apartments and houses where there isn't a freeway, a street or a business.
