Walkable Cobble Hill

This article already made the rounds last week but it’s worth sharing here now too far all who missed it.  We all know NYC is a pretty walkable place and even with an inadequately funded mass transit system and a still growing bicycle infrastructure, its density still allows many people to regularly rely on two feet rather than two wheels. WalkScore is a system that rates and promotes that ability because

  • People in walkable neighborhoods weigh 6-10 lbs less.
  • Walkable places make you happier and healthier.
  • Short commutes reduce stress and increase community involvement.

Cobble Hill and the adjacent neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights, both reached the city’s highest scores – 98 out of 100. Congrats Cobble Hill!
