The rankings place New York City at the top as America's most stressed city, and well, duh. Detroit and Los Angeles at two and three? Obviously, considering Detroit's bankruptcy and Los Angeles being L.A. America's most stressed cities are boring.
The bottom of the list – America's least stressed cities, aka the chillest – is much more interesting. SLC is the most relaxed (maybe the punks won after all, or the fact that Utah saw its same-sex marriage ban fall Wednesday), and other zen cities include Minneapolis (but not St. Paul?) and Raleigh, North Carolina. My only quibble: two western New York cities 50 and lower? As a Rochester, NY native, I can assure you that no Rust Belt member should be considered chill in any sense of the word. Certainly not the second least stressed city in America.
