Which city do you think is a veritable rat race?

(rat race - an exhausting routine that leaves no time for relaxation. The daily grind; business world; 9-5; long commutes, etc.)

I say NYC, they have the fastest pace lifestyle there and the longest average commute of any other city in the US.

Better question would be which city is not a rat race !
The tighter you pack the rats together the more they chew on each other !

I usually like to vote for my city but I just can't bring myself to do that this time. I've been to New York City and it's definitely a rat race there.
