Some of you may have missed it, as Odograph introduced it down in comments, so I thought I’d bring it up front:

Check out Walk Score, where you can plug in your address and find out how walkable your home is, on a scale of one to 100.

My old place — a condo near the heart of Ballard in Seattle — scored a 94. My new place, a house north of Seattle, just south of Shoreline, gets a 66.

I wonder if it knows whether you have sidewalks? Because that obviously affects walkability. We don’t have any in our neighborhood, and it’s a serious pain in the ass.
