Why do I often see two, three, even four different Thai restaurants on the same block, sometimes even right next to one another?

I've seen this in New Haven, CT and multiple neighborhoods in Chicago, IL - so it's not isolated to only one area.
I've always assumed that it had something to do with mutual support and valuing community - but even so, doesn't it make it difficult to make a living?
