My neighborhood is probably more walkable than yours

"Walk Score" has done the math and it turns out that I live in the 22d most walkable neighborhood in the U.S., which they've designated as Center City East, Philadelphia. While the top-25 end of the list there is heavily weighted toward neighborhoods in New York City, I'd wager that it's roughly one billion times cheaper to live in my little neck of the woods than to try to find an equivalent there.

Center City East beat Atrios's Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista, which turns up at 113. Must be because of those bullets he has to dodge all the time while he's enjoying coffee and croissants on his deck.
