We calculated the Walk Score of 11,538 points in Seattle to rank 77 neighborhoods and create a walkability map of Seattle.
If you are a walkability geek or a Web 2.0 nitnork (or you are both like we are), you might enjoy reading our detailed methodology page.
A big thanks to Zillow for making their neighborhood boundaries publicly available. It’s a hard problem to define the boundaries of a neighborhood—just ask your neighbors and see how many different answers you get.
We’re also announcing our new advisory board made up of walkability, urban planning, and technical experts from organizations like the Sightline Institute, The Brookings Institution, and Google. We’re currently looking to diversify our advisory board and add an expert on affordable housing. If you have any suggestions, let us know.
Many thanks to our advisors for helping us to improve Walk Score and promote walkable neighborhoods!
