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!
