How Walkable is your neighborhood?

17 Jul

When planning to purchase a home prospective buyers like to know just how walkable a neighborhood is.  I was introduced to www.walkscore.com , this site allows you to plug in an address and rate the walkability.

I live in Wyckoff near the major intersection of Franklin and Wyckoff ave. Below is a Map that shows the walk score for that section of Wyckoff and some of the local amenities .

If you are into walking/running there is a GREAT app called Map my Run that you should check out.  The app downloads to your smart phone and tracks your route via GPS.  Below is a photo that shows my daily walk route around the neighborhood.  After each walk/run you have the option to share this route via Facebook or Twitter.
