This may be difficult because it's very subjective. Rank the top 10 fastest paced cities in the US. Try to give an explanation and justification for your choices also.

I spent up to 4 weeks a year at our office in SF, and find it quite laid back. At least compared to our Boston office.

I actually found LA and San Fran to be a bit more laid back than here in Chicago.

I think Boston, NYC and Philly were more my style as far as faced paced.

Also makes a difference where you live and work of course. I live on the north side and work downtown. I have friends in the burbs who work in the burbs and they feel like snails to me when we're out and about. They always tell me I'm crazy and need to slow the F down.

Im still waiting for a concrete definition of what exactly 'laid back' is supposed to mean because LA is more fast paced than any US city except New York in my experience. Furthermore, most Americans(even in Greater NYC) work in suburban office parks nowadays so how truly 'fast paced' are we?

Is it how fast people walk? How fast they talk? How fast they drive? How fast they type?*winks*

LOL...seriously I think some people are thinking too hard about this.

We're gonna need a better guideline of what "fast paced city" refers to exactly.
