OK, this is too cool, so I’m hijacking it from the comments in the previous post. On the heels of GardenWalk, an oh-so-walkable event, check out what Susan found:
Go to WalkScore and type in your address. It uses Google Maps to score how walkable your neighborhood is based on the proximity to restaurants, stores, schools, etc. (and freely admits that other factors, like the availability of sidewalks, are not taken into account.)
My editor’s office in Greenwich Village scores a perfect 100. Given that, how does little old Eureka fare?
88. Not bad, but I’d advocate for adjusting it downward because our local food co-op is included in the listings several times (for its deli, coffee shop, etc etc) even though it had the nerve to move across town several months ago. Damn them.
