Promoting the Joys of Carfree Life in the USA
(Since February 2006)
Most of my favorite neighborhoods score in the 90s.But my house only got a 73. And we live car-free. Let's do a little contest.Who has the lowest score?Living carfree in a 85+ neighborhood is cake.Does anyone live in a neighborhood in the 60s? That is truly pushing the carfree envelope and making it safe for the carfree tribe.As they say, "We Are Everywhere."
Our carfree house gets a 78.So Liza is still the champ.
The address of the apartment I'm living in this coming school year gave me a score of 23. So I looked up other student apartments around town, and one of them got a 72. But I still plan on walking to class (almost 2 miles away) and using the bike for grocery shopping. (Oh, and my home address didn't do much better - 29!)
My home address came up 68. This is a walkability score, not a carfree score. A carfree score would take in to account things like mass transit, car sharing and demographics (it doesn't really matter to me where the schools are.)
