Any major city in world (incl Manhattan) largely exists for benefit of clueless tourists (and low-skill, often illegal, tourism workers) who likely don't know that economy of any major city is largely suburban in era of mobile computing and much cheaper, more efficient, car-centric suburbs

And for those who lack decent air conditioning, decent local scenery, and grub in their home, suppose spending time&money visiting some distant tourist resort/town is justified
