But it’s quite a bit more complicated than that. What is really the CBD of London or Shanghai?

New York is really the only American city comparable to a European city, where basically the whole lower half of Manhattan is the “central city” and contains multiple CBDs. And in NYC, “Downtown” is a geographic designation rather than referring to the CBD per se.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
