New York vs. San Francisco
New York eked out a lead over San Francisco, which was the most walkable city in our 2008 rankings but, before you get too cocky New York, you’re only ahead by .4 points.
This is such a close race that we’ve built a user voting system so you can tell us which city you think is most walkable!
And remember, we use the official city borders from the census. So when you rate the walkability of NYC, you have to include Staten Island!
We also calculated the Walk Score of 2,500 cities and over 10,000 neighborhoods in the United States. Our new map view lets you explore cities by Walk Score, population, and region.
