I love writing on walkable cities. Have you noticed? I’m not the only one, though. There are huge communities and organizations of people working on that one particular issue. There’s also a great website, Walk Score, that ranks cities on their walkability (which I’m frustrated to find out is still not a word according to my Google Chrome spell checker).
The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) recently announced the country’s 11 most Walk Friendly Communities based on factors related to safety, mobility, access and comfort.
