Louisville 41st among cities with Walk Score

Walk Score rates how good a city or a neighborhood is for walking.  This involves being a connected with useable sidewalks and having great destinations.  Louisville ranks as 41st among large cities with a score of 40.  The highest city is New York with a score of 85.  But as you can imagine, there are neighborhoods in Louisville that rate just as high.  And not surprisingly, they have been stable neighborhoods with high home ownership and resale values.  Studies have shown that walkable neighborhoods make for healthier people, but also happier.  Perhaps there is something to making walkable neighborhoods.  The next step maybe to see where we can “grow” our walkable neighborhoods.
