Walk Score: How walkable is your San Francisco?

Do you consider San Francisco a walkable city? Do you eschew cars?

Our little neighborhood, even though it is sandwiched on three sides by some fairly daunting hills, scores an amazing 98 points out of a possible 100 on Walk Score, a cool little gizmo that calculates the walkability of a 'hood by mapping your address's proximity to businesses and services of all kinds.

Which would explain how we are able to spend so many happy, lazy weekends with the commuting car perma-parked in the Kojak spot, all of our needs met by padding mere blocks to a local business or park.

What about your neighborhood? Pay a visit to Walk Score and let us know in the comments what your score was and what city and neighborhood you live in. We'll average the responses and post the results.
