and the Big Apple has ousted the Golden Gate as the "Most Walkable US City" with a "walkability score" of 85.3%! This should be great news for everyone's favorite walking bunny, who thought he was just walking because the traffic is too bad to drive a car!! Truth is, his city offers more treasures within walking distance of more addresses than any other city in the country! The #4 ranking goes to GingerSnap-rich Chicago, and Mistress Maddie enjoys the #5 ranking... at least whenever she drags her hung over ass into the city!
Poor lazy Miss Ginger is stuck in Houston, which, surprisingly, ranked 23rd out of 50. Heat, distance, and humidity make Houston very unwalkable in Miss Ginger's book, but according to the survey, some places are worse (sucks being Oklahoma City!)
Interestingly enough, however, Miss Ginger's humble domicile enjoys a walkability rating of 85%!! Her historic neighborhood was built as a "streetcar community", where everything was designed to be a short walk from the streetcar line. The electric streetcars are long since gone, but the long, narrow layout remains, making distances pretty manageable. Now, if only we could find a solution for the heat and humidity, Miss G might actually stretch her legs and get some exercise!
Check out the amenities within walking distance of Miss G, and then put in your own address to see your score! Which GingerSnap has the highest walkability rating?
