I've lived in 2 different places - both of them about a 10-12 minute walk to the subway. I guess it's kind of far - but since that's what I've always had, it doesn't bother me. It keeps me in shape!

Default train about

10 blocks from my apt, about a 10 minute walk, but bus stops right at my apt so trip would only take about 3 minutes with bus/train transfer, very convenient

From the platform to inside my apartment, about 7 minutes to both the J/M/Z and the L/G. When I was in college, I lived about 12 minutes, at a brisk pace, from the 6, which was a little annoying. I'd say 15-20 minutes is the most I could tolerate, but it kind of depends on how long the train ride is and if the commute involves transferring.

The first apartment I had was 2 short blocks north plus 4 long blocks (.6mi). The second apartment was 3 long blocks. The third apartment was 4 short blocks south plus 1 or 2 long blocks (depending on the line). Current apartment is 2 short blocks!

My favorite walk was to the F, which only took about 5-8 minutes, but was peaceful and not rushed. I'd never live farther than 2 long blocks plus 5 short blocks. For me, the long blocks hurt, I can take a lot of short blocks. Usually the long blocks tended to be up or down hill each way. :-/ Living closer is always better, and living close to an express train is always the best, but usually not possible.
