I first saw this last year and can't recall if I blogged about it.. but the WSJ's number guy reminds me of a neat site http://www.walkscore.com/
which you can use to figure out your own neighborhoods "Walk Score". Not a criticism, but what it misses is access to transit routes which I think is a part of the mix. But it's a neat site, check it out.
I found a nearly perfect score in the middle of Bloomfield. A score of 98 out of a hundred for 4700 Liberty Ave
Let's have a contest. Can anyone find a higher score anywhere in the Pittsburgh region?
Where is the lowest score?
