So if 98% of Manhattan is lethally noisy, should apartments with bedrooms that face the back of the building or airshaft  command a premium?  Besides their potentially life-extending (relative) quietude, think of all the money to be saved on earplugs and blood pressure medicine.  Bonus:  With no sweeping views to admire, you can shut those curtains and meander to the bathroom like a normal nude person instead of getting all out of breath windowstreaking.
