Default NY Times Square vs. Las Vegas Strip

I saw a Vegas vs. NY thread and was brought to my attention that this could be a good thread!

So, lets hear comparisons, and vote what you like more!

remember, this is the Strip vs. Times square only! everything else in both cities do NOT matter =)

Times Square looks much cooler but there is much more to do on the Vegas Strip.

Both locations should be avoided at all cost unless you like to be trampled by tourist but.... considering what is located in/near Times Square and the Strip however TS winds hands down. Hint: arts and media.

Times Square, without question.

Vegas Strip seems like a plastic, empty place to me. All glitz and no substance right in the middle of the desert.

Times Square is actually a real place, so I'll take that.

It's hard for me to choose. Las Vegas is my second favorite city. I think there's more to do on the strip than in Times Square, since Times Square isn't exactly the central part of NY most people go to do things (like the strip is to LV). Those 2 places probably are the busiest places in the country through all hours of the night. As much as I love LV, I have to go with NY just because it's my home.

Though I must say, I'll never forget being on top of Mandalay bay in the Foundation room overlooking the strip. It was a really nice site.
