Actually I did it again and saw that it was listed under the Conservatory rather than the garden. It's funny, The Bedford Park Group home was listed as a park. I don't see any category for public transportation, which I would think would be very important for walkability.

Oh ok, i think get it.. so according to this your neighborhood is considerable 'walkable" based on shopping/accessibility? I thought "walkable" meant not getting harrased, shot, stabbed, or robbed walking in your neighborhood.

I'm closing on a apt and moving to Kew Gardens by the end of the month. Only scored a 78. I personally like walking by beautiful homes and gardens rather then having a Mengs Delight or Bob's Check Cashing on the corner!
