80...I don't agree with the results, because it doesn't list the small neighborhood grocery store that is 2 blocks away, only the Giant Eagle .98 miles away. There's 8 different eateries withing a .2 mile radius, as well as a park about .3 miles away.

I think if they listed the small store, the score would be higher. Now, if they added in the hills that you need to walk up and down, then the score would be ok, if not a bit high.

43.

I don't get it. We have walking / biking pathways all through the neighborhood, as well as a large neighborhood shopping center within close walking distance tucked away in the community.

78. What I think is right, I need the car for grocery but can go for a 3.5mile walk around the lake with my dog. Griffith park is a 5 minute ride if I want to go for a 7 mile hike.

78 which seems low. I'm a few blocks from bike and walking trails. I'm close to coffee shops, restaurants and grocery stores. I could walk to one of my part time jobs.

Can you walk plenty or do you need other people's buildings and stuff around to walk? Is the view worse or better with less people and buildings?

I like your HOO HAW!

It's not just whether or not you can walk in the neighborhood. It's whether or not you can carry out life's everyday activities on foot. It's a crucial feature of a neighborhood for the poor or the elderly.

I wonder if this site takes things like crime rate and muggings into account...
