Yvonne and I have been looking into new neighborhoods. We’ve been doing some street walks downtown as the urban core has been pulling at our hearts.
For us it simply makes more sense to be living in a more local context, commuting less, and working and playing in a common community. It also makes less and less sense for us sleeping at night while being distant from those who might need us most.
A cool website I recently found measures your neighborhoods ‘walkability‘. It takes a walking radius of your address and scores it based on what schools, grocers, shopping, etc. are in your area. I’m currently measuring in at 48, what about you?
