The most walkable streets in San Francisco aren’t always the ones with the most destinations within walking distance, according to a new walkability web-app. Several surprising streets and neighborhoods in San Francisco have been rated as ‘walkable’, when other factors of pedestrian-friendliness are taken into account: such as fear of crime, steepness of hills and crossing the street.
The Walkonomics web-app uses ‘Open Data’ and ‘Crowdsourcing’ to rate the pedestrian-friendliness of over 14,000 streets in San Francisco in the following categories:
Easy to cross;
Fear of crime;
Smart & beautiful;
Fun & relaxing.
