What city has the most pedestrains and foot traffic in their downtown area? I know Portland has a lot, and obviously Chicago and New York. On google maps, it surprised me how much Philadelphia had. It actually looked like Philly had more than Chicago. What do you think contributes the most to foot traffic downtown? Is it events being held, people living there, lots of people working there? What city were you surprised to see had lots of pedestrians and what city did you think had a lot of pedestrians and disappointed you? What city has the least pedestrians in their downtown?

While Chicago looks more similar to NYC with all of the skyscrapers and such. I never thought that the foot traffic in that city was very impressive. And I've been there alot. These other cities have smaller downtowns with the exception of NY but have more people walking around. And I've been to all of these cities in which I am judging..That's not to say that there are parts of Chicago that are really congested. But if I think of the "whole" downtown, I would rank those other cities higher with foot traffic..Just my two cents..
