Walkers' Paradise

Thanks to Living Small blog, I discovered a nifty tool that allows you to calculate the walkability of your neighborhood - or one you are considering living in. No surprise that just about any nabe in New York City scores 100 (check out the Pod's score in the box to the right). Organized by categories (grocery stores, bars, drug stores, etc.), Walk Score is also a great way to discover new gems that you didn't know existed in your own neck of the woods.

wow, what a super cool site...thanks so much for sharing! I might blog about it soon too - hope you don't mind! I only scored a 58 where I am now, but I knew it wasn't great already, but I do like how it showed some things that I didn't necessarily know were around me.
