Thoughts of visiting Nebraska are fleeting, only if an Omaha Steak is your most prized conquest. New York is better across the board especially in worthwhile monuments, sites and landmarks.. Nebraska’s forecast of besting New York is cloudy at best. Other than a signature dish, the “Cornhusker State” spends the majority of this comparison hustling to make up significant ground against New York.

New York is the most populated state in the United States and one of the more frequented by visitors. The reason for the latter is pretty simply when one takes a quick snapshot of what New York is offering.

Poignancy abounds with the Statue of Liberty Monument and the World Trade Center Memorial. The former is the epitome of freedom. The WTC Memorial pays homage to those who were lost in the September 11 tragedy.

Everything from the Brooklyn Bridge – which offers a tremendous view of Manhattan – to the commercially driven, light-show of Times Square, New York is difficult to defeat.

Nebraska has a few noteworthy sites but nothing in the same realm as New York. The Sand Hills Dunes is the largest of its kind in the entire Western Hemisphere and covers an astonishing 13 million acres.[1]

The moon is on full display at the Toadstool Geologic Park in Nebraska. The area is littered with rock formations lined up to mirror the surface of the moon. Those strolling through have commented that it feels like a surreal moon-walk.

Those inclined for a walk should test their shoes at the 102-story Empire State Building. At one point, the Empire State Building was the tallest in the world from 1931-1972.[2]

Nebraska’s sand dunes and moon walking aside, New York piles on the drawing power with their famous Broadway area, not to mention two distinct parks that fill the outdoor activity void nicely.

Forty theaters comprise the Broadway area and tallied more than 1 billion dollars in ticket sales in 2011.[3]

Camping and fishing are staples of Catskill Park, which sits on 700,000 acres and also offers 300 miles of walking tracks. Adirondack park in New York is the same size as New Hampshire and rock climbers and hikers converge on this mammoth site.[4]

Nebraska does mention to best New York in one key area: food. The famous Omaha Steaks are the stuff of legends and certainly don’t disappoint, especially at the world-renowned Anthony’s Steakhouse.

New York deserves immense credit for being a food melting pot, offering distinct cultural and ethnic foods through the state. From street-side carts, fine dining or famous deli sandwiches, New York has something for everyone.

New York crushes Nebraska with easy in the hotel fare. The “Big Apple” is big on a plethora of selections that are ranked five stars. The Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton are the top two on that list.

Nebraska’s lone champion is a paltry four-star affair: the Hilton in Omaha.[5]

Try as it may, Nebraska’s signature steakhouses can’t cut through the tough exterior and incredible diverse New York.
