Skyscraper - All Green Electronics Recycling

Have you ever wanted to live in a place where you could forgo your car and walk everywhere? It wouldn’t be possible to do this in some cities, but you might be able to here:

  1. New York City, New York
  2. San Francisco, California
  3. Boston, Massachusetts
  4. Chicago, Illinois
  5. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  6. Seattle, Washington
  7. Washington, D.C.
  8. Miami, Florida
  9. Minneapolis, Minnesota
  10. Oakland, California
  11. Long Beach, California
  12. Portland, Oregon
  13. Los Angeles, California
  14. Baltimore, Maryland
  15. Milwaukee, Wisconsin

In theory, walkable cities have fewer fuel-burning vehicles, less pollution, more commerce, and higher property values when compared with less walkable cities.

It is important to note that this score isn’t perfect and even people who live in walkable areas might need a car to travel to work or out of town, especially if there are few public transportation options.
