There's nothing to do in omaha. They're biggest city wouldn't even be the fifth largest in the Rochester metro area.

You move to cornhole land, and you're stuck killing pigs for a living.

You do realize that Omaha is quite a bit bigger than Rochester and has 9 fortune 1000 companies headquartered there (5 are fortune 500).

Good luck there in Rochester.

This post does not make any sense. May I ask whether you've lived or spent time in Omaha?

Hahaha nice joke, on so many levels.

2009 Omaha city population: 454,731

2009 Rochester city population: 207,294

2009 Omaha Metro: 849,517

2009 Rochester Metro: 1,035,556

Way to fail.

Does anyone have the square mileage of the two cities? That could be a part of the reasoning behind why Omaha has more people in the city limits.

Not sure about the square miles, but it seems more sensible to look at metro area populations. I think Rochester's is around 1.1 million and Omaha's is around 850,000. Rochester is surrounded by a lot of suburbs, while there are not as many suburbs surrounding Omaha. That seems to be more common in western cities. Albuquerque is the same way.

Exactly and the thing with the NE is that the first and second ring suburbs coulde viewed like outer city neighborhoods in Western and Southern cities.

Also, in NY, you have villages in the suburbs that are like little urban communities with walkable neighborhoods and a business district/downtown. Look at communities like Brockport, Pittsford, Webster, Fairport, Spencerport and East Rochester among others that fit this bill.

Penny, my husband works in child psychiatry. It seems like there are opportunities in that field in most places. What area does your husband work in?

Just to add to this, Omaha should have more people in the city limits, as it is 115.7 sq. mi. to Rochester's more dense 35.6 sq. mi. So, that has to be put in proper perspective.
