I wonder if s/he meant "walkable" streets? That seems to make more sense .....

Since the streets are not walkable, they cannot be workable.

I wonder if she meant "walkable". Yes it's hilly but not THAT bad.

Do you have to worry about ticks if you live in, say the center of the city? Just walking in your backyard?

In town I wouldn't worry. But it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye out for them. I found a tick just randomly crawling in my car one day, and I hadn't even been out of the city. I did have my car parked with the windows cracked. But it won't be any where near as bad as it is out in the country. I just moved up to Greene county, and I find one on me at least once a week.

Just curious...I have lived in Mass...where there is the highest concentration on Lyme disease, and also Maine & NH ..where every day in my backyard ticks would climb on us and my dogs.... (And we get extremely heavy winters)...

Are there a lot of deer in the woods outside this area? And in the State/National Parks?
Are the ticks mostly deer ticks, or dog ticks? Or others? Up North, Lyme is the most common worry for disease, and I know the further South you go, other disease are a worry too (Rocky mt spotted fever etc)

Theres lots of deer around me and other critters.I see them everyday.I check my dogs everyday for ticks on into the winter.Wasnt much of a winter last year .I do beleev theres 4 maybe 5 different kinds and different sizes,seed ticks,deer ticks,them big ugly gray ones. Anyway,I put tick prevention on my dogs and cats for ticks,skeeters and flees.Dealing with ticks is just part of living in the woods along with the other bugs and critters living here too.Not sure if ticks are that much in town but I know skeeters can be right bad there.
