This Neighborhood Is Changing the Way We Think About Omaha

The Blackstone District is just about the coolest place in Nebraska's big city, right now—it's home to plenty of good food and drink, too.

You'd think a place like Omaha would be awfully easy to define from afar, but you'd be wrong. Way out there on the tail end of the Midwest, and yet still a half day's drive or so from the places where the West begins in our popular imagination, Nebraska's big city sits there, stuck in the middle and right on the banks of the Missouri River, staring blankly back at Iowa, lost in something like its own universe.
