Walk Score Your Neighborhood

If you’ve never heard of walk score then you need to go to their website right now and check it out. It is a great tool when familiarizing yourself with potential new apartments or homes, especially if you are moving into an unfamiliar city or neighborhood. The idea behind the site is pretty simple. It compiles certain types of data (nearest public transportation, stores, restaurants, etc) and uses this data to compile a score out of 100.

And now Walk Score is allowing users to add ‘rich local insight’ to supplement their neighborhood’s scores. So if there is some unquantifiable allure to  your neighborhood, now you can make sure that it is credited in your neighborhood’s walk score.

Be sure to check it out!
