no body walks in LA
…of course not, because it’s not “walkable” like our northern neighbor, San Francisco. SF bay scored a whopping 86 out of a possible 100 according to rankings released today by WalkScore.com, a service designed to help those seeking a less automobile-dependent life. According to the SF Gate:
San Francisco scored an 86 out of 100, besting New York’s 83 and Boston’s 79. Seventeen of San Francisco’s neighborhoods ranked 90 or above – considered a “walker’s paradise” – including Chinatown, the Mission, Nob Hill and Haight-Ashbury.
The article goes on to explain that high-density urban locals are more appealing because of the walkability angle. So, since no one walks in LA should we concentrate on more densely populating our urban-scape? Could that somehow reduce our carbon-footprints while increasing our Croc’s footprints.
