Gotta love WalkScore! This website has been around for a while, but keeps adding new features. Enter any address and get its pedestrian-friendliness rating. My neighborhood? “Car-dependent.” Now I can agree or disagree with this rating, Tweet it, post on Facebook, etc. Better still, I get a list of amenities in the area. Another feature allows you to search for rentals in a city or neighborhood, and then see what’s nearby. Of course there’s a mobile app. And then there’s WalkScore Professional, with a host of add-ons including WalkScore APIs, Travel Time API, and Walkability research, among others. Check it out: www.walkscore.com.
