Do you know the Walk Score of your house? There is a website that will give you a walkability score. You simply type in your address and it gives you the walk score. Not surprisingly, New York City tops the list in the US with a score of 88. But many cities score much, much lower.
So, I was curious how our neighborhood stacked up. At first glance, when you look at South Portland, you discover it's not very walkable - it has a score of 40. It's classified as 'car dependent'. A walkability that low means you need a car to get around.
