In many communities today the residents have taken to the streets, literally. They leave their automobiles at home and walk, to the grocery store, the pharmacy, restaurants, or just for fresh air and exercise. So, many of them now use a 'walk score' to judge the 'walkability' of a neighborhood. We have many such communities here in New Jersey, communities with a vibrant downtown area and housing nearby. It's really pleasant to be able to get some sunshine and fresh air, some exercise, and meet and greet your neighbors as you walk to the corner store for your Sunday Newspaper or whatever.
