8. Another good reason that republicans might understand
It's all about money. Greater exposure means more money. South Street seaport and the Intrepid museum get more visitors in a month than Houston would get in a year. I lived in the Metro NYC area for 15 years and had to do work on $Wall St, not to mention escorting friends and visitors around NYC.

I spent three weeks in the Houston area that felt like a year. There are some great tourist attractions but mostly of limited interest. The problem is that most visitors to the area seem to have EXTREMLY fat wallets and that kind of stuff just doesn't interest them.
