Hey Emis..where did you live in Jersey? I did the same for Red Bank, NJ, it got a 52, I'm surprised by that score, I thought it was a great town to walk..

Mine is an 89 out of 100!!! Probably because we are so close to Southpark Mall and the movie theatre..

My neighborhood scored 72 out of 100. We live near (not in) Plaza Midwood. We can walk to the bank, post office, library, grocery store, and a variety of restaurants.

I think anything near 50, or above, is really good, that's what it seems like anyway

My old house in CT got a 72, my old house in Fayetteville got a 3 and my house here got a 9. Yes, we get in our cars to go everywhere here.

My neighbourhood got a 6. Now, to walk to the places it listed, one would have to walk on Harris Blvd. (by the university)

I don't have a death wish, so, my analysis is a "0"!!

63 for my eastside abode. I thought it would be higher.

Gave me a 51. But I'm definitely not walking through Grier Heights so that score is misleading.
