Stressed Out? It's Probably Because You Live In NYC

New York City took the No. 2 spot in a recent research study on stressed-out cities.

NYC ranked No. 2 on a stressed-out city study, which probably isn't very shocking considering the rats, subways derailing, dense population and ridiculously high cost of living.

The study, issued by Movoto, a real-estate blog, took into account commute times, high cost of living, crime, hours worked, population density and percentage of income spent on rent to hammer out the level of stress for each city.

New York stayed firmly planted in its No. 2 spot, which a Forbes/Gallup poll also awarded it last year, with smoggy Los Angeles and cold Chicago taking No. 1 and No. 3, respectively.

In contrast to Movoto's research, Chicago ranks no. 7 and L.A. ranks No. 10.

You forgot de Blasio and the FBI now checking into campaign contributions. Could ya just back off the carriage horse thing already? Or give them acreage in the Park- that would be cool.

Its especially stressful because so many apartments have predatory landlords who are now allowed to double even triple their rent if they can prove an often exaggerated expenditure of "capital" http://parkslope.patch.com/groups/reports-from-the-field-clearfield/p/open-letter-to-mayor-deblasio--part-ii

Why even bother to unpack - once you move in - when the landlord is going to double the rent in just one year and you're forced back out again?
