Walk Appeal

Biking ElsewhereBy Steve Mouzon, Better! Cities & Towns

Walk Appeal promises to be a major new tool for understanding and building walkable places, and it explains several things that were heretofore either contradictory or mysterious. It begins with the assertion that the quarter-mile radius (or 5-minute walk,) which has been held up for a century as the distance Americans will walk before driving, is actually a myth.

[B' Spokes: Shows wonderful examples where people are willing to walk up to 2 miles and all the way down to 25 feet. I will also note that the same people that assume the quarter-mile walking radius also design bus stops with a one mile walk to get across the street.]
