英文的問題dollars-and-cents 是什麼意思?

Washington Heights, a vibrant yet unpolished swath of Upper Manhattan, is a dollars-and-cents kind of place, home to auto mechanics, hospital workers and housekeepers who say they struggle to pay the rent, to pay for overnight parking, to pay to ride the No. 1 train, to pay a $15.93 bill for an appliance.
