Keep dreaming, LA. Central LA will never be as walkable as the East Coast cities nor it will have a decent transit system. People forget that density isn't directly related to walkability and being urban. LA and Miami are examples of that (Walkscore is ridiculously wrong in giving Miami a high score and not putting Philadelphia as #1).

I'm from DC, we crush Miami in walkability, biking, transit, density, etc. Thats like comparing a cantaloupe to a clementine lol nice try though.

You didn't crush us in that score, did you?

74 for DC, 76 for Miami.

I know, I still like how you cried in the opening post, how did Miami score so high

Stop trying to pick a fight...... You are going to get this thread closed early..... between you getting heated for Miami boasting and the OP for Philly boasting. The thread easily can go downhill quickly...

How did Miami score so high. Good question. Because if anyone has been to both, they would easily see that DC is far more urban than Miami and far more walkable. And good luck relying on Miami's substandard public transit system.

Because you haven't been in both, so you don't see all the neighborhoods with high walkability like Little Havana and Brickell which make up a larger percentage of Miami than the walkable neighborhoods do for DC.

And our transportation scores lower than DC, as expected. Though I'd never rely on subway cars, I'd get a taxi if I can't walk somewhere. Too many people there I don't want to stand shoulder to shoulder.

I've most definitely been in both. As I have experience all over Dade County from South Miami to Ives Dairy Road and DC obliterates Miami ben it comes to walkable hoods. It's not close. Miami in reality is closer to Atlanta than it is to DC. Also little Havana and Brickell? Lol. Where do I begin with DC to put both those to shame. And I noticed how you disregard transit but yet used an area that has great access to Miami's transit options such as Brickell.
