It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Walk Score is about helping people find great places to live, work and play.  It’s about what’s outside the four walls of a home or business, being close to the people and places you love, having transportation choices, and living a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

Introducing A New Neighborhood Experience

Today we’re bringing together all of our quantitative data about transportation and places with tens of thousands of photos and comments into a new neighborhood experience.

Our new neighborhood pages help people find the neighborhood that suits them best, to understand their transportation options, and to showcase what’s unique and special about a neighborhood — the community gathering spots, green spaces, public art, culture, schools, and the mix of nearby businesses.

Walk Score neighborhoods by the numbers:

  • Walk Score ratings and heatmaps for over 10,000 neighborhoods
  • Restaurant ChoiceMaps for over 10,000 neighborhoods
  • Transit Score ratings and transit maps for over 3,000 neighborhoods
  • Bike Score ratings for over 5,000 neighborhoods
  • Photos of almost 2,000 neighborhoods

Example Neighborhoods: Capitol Hill, Seattle  |  Park Slope, Brooklyn  |  South Loop, Chicago.

In addition, our new, free score badges make it easy for anyone to join the 20,000+ sites that use Walk Score. This also marks the first time that our neighborhood and city-level scores have been available to third-parties for integration into their web sites and mobile apps. Just click the Add score badges to your site link next to any score.

Become a Neighborhood Guide

Nobody knows your neighborhood better than you do. And now we’re making it easier than ever for you to showcase your local expertise by contributing photos and comments about the neighborhoods you know and love via the Web, iPhone and our brand new Android app.

People who add the best photos and comments become Neighborhood Guides. This is an opportunity for real estate professionals and others to build their local brands and to reach Walk Score’s audience of over 1 million monthly visitors deciding where to live.
