I wonder how many people here actually practice what they preach? Not many I'm sure, I can smell the the hypocrisy. Rules for thee and not for me is the rule of the internet.

So let's post our walkscores and let's see how bad things really are. If any of the there numbers are under 90 you don't belong here.

What is a walkscore? Google shows some kind of US house/Apartment sale site

I live in the midwest and we had 2 weeks of sub sero weather so the first score is going to be zero from everyone Minneapolis to Dallas.

>look up walkscore
>its a onions website trying to sell me urban loft backfill restomods

lol

>my city is flat and easily walkable
>we have a toy train streetcar for tourists and a free express bus (the MAXX) that goes everywhere from 6am to midnight

Urbanists are dumb I suspect they are just mouthpieces for the real estate complex. I live in the 'burbs and we have a supermarket .8 miles away and a bodega/gasstation/market .5 miles away. We have double wide sidewalks, we have a rail-trail I can literally hop on and travel across the state that's 3 miles north of me.

In the end you have to ask what do these people want? Is it not merely access but are they looking to fundamentally remake our country based on their insecurities (can't afford suburbs or AAA urban condos, can't afford car/sared to drive, etc).

This score is bullshit, it should be much lower. Small, Midwestern shithole town. No bike lanes, surrounded by cornfields, only roads in or out of town are 55+ MPH with jacked-up RAM trucks going 85+ MPH.

As soon as you ride your bike out of this town of 2000 residents, you WILL die.
>>
>>1977214
Pretty sure it's supposed to be like the grading scale where 91+ is an A, 81-90 is a B, and so on, down to F which is in the 50s plus or minus a few. So if you're scoring in the 40s it's an F- and if it's a 22 it's like you were fucking up intentionally.

In short ,seems about right from what you described

Bike score could be higher. There's no bike lanes but "downtown" is so small, cars can't go faster than 30 mph anywhere. There are some jank corners but generally if you can walk you can bike.

These walkscore systems are always junk, they literally can't tell the difference between what is a grocery store and what isn't, so it will rate the local gas station as the closest "grocery store" instead of the real supermarket.
>>
>>1977566
What's a "gas station"?

t. 100
>>
85, 55, 56. But i'm a vehicular cyclist and i live a block from the central bus station so i live within one hour of the entire city plus some suburbs. Walk Score is a great concept but after they published their site they gave up on improvements or keeping data accurate.

urbanists would like where you live and much of the US is not like this. I had to walk across a freeway overpass with a maybe 4 foot wide afterthought sidewalk to get to any grocery store in my hometown.

You can associate urbanism with "I wanna live in the hustle.bustle.big city", but that's not what it's about.

You probably don't want to like urbanism bc you associate it with libtards. One of the largest urbanist grassroots organizations (Strong Towns) is conservative.

I tried to check this site for European cities but they don't even include them. They would need the scale to go up to 200 if they did desu.

Lol. NJB, who he has worked closely with, admits there are lots of "leftists" (his word, not mine) at Strong Towns, Strong Towns is backed by a number of NGOs (hardly "grassroots"), and Marohn's political party is the "American Solidarity Party" which is a mix-and-match of different philosophies. The only vaguely conservative stuff is some social conservative policies like anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ stuff, along with pro-concealed carry, but that's about it. Everything else is out of the Democrat playbook, including pro-"social justice" including "efforts to address systemic and historic injustices" and fiscally liberal.

I like walking my dog in suburbia. I go to the park, today I got rained on. I go with my mom to keep her heart in better shape with mild exercise.

35 car dependent, 70 bikeability.
I used to walk to school in elementary, and then rode my bicycle to middle school, high school, and college.

I do errands on my bike or motorcycle/sidecar.

Marohn's whole schtick is "stroads are bad because they're fiscally irresponsible." There's def a large amount of 'RETVRN to 1950s small town Minnesota' in his work (have met him and read one of his books). And other than the anti-stroads position, which is really an engineering position, being anti-zoning, you can argue it's propertarian and from the right wing economics tradition. The "vaguely conservative stuff" you admit about his party is pretty far to the right of the median voter.

When it comes to putting anyone in power as far as city leadership goes, I'd rather put a Democrat in charge rather than a person who shares all the same bad traits but also wants to screw over my commute. Lesser of two evils, I say.

I would normally vote right, but you can't bamboozle me into think Marohn is a "conservative" when you actually look at what's going on. If choice one is:
>gibs for darkies/illegals
>higher taxes
>not fucking over major thoroughfares

If choice two is:
>gibs for darkies/illegals
>higher taxes
>fucking over major thoroughfares

I'm going with choice one, sorry.

1950s small town minnesota was basically socialist though. Unions and welfare programs were unquestionably Good Things(tm) even during the height of the red scare, taxing the rich was so obviously a good idea that anyone who said otherwise would have been seen as insane or stupid. Religion was a different matter. Antisemitism was mainstream, homophobia was normal, divorce wasn't really a thing. But relative to the country overall, small town minnesota was socially moderate for its time, and economically it was one of the most lefty places in the country.

The hard swing to the economic right was basically a consequence of agricultural and mining jobs vanishing by the 80s, anyone productive fled the small towns for the twin cities and cynicism gripped the remaining population. The right's power over rural minnesota only really reached hurricane force after Paul Wellstone was assassinated and the GOP's fearmongering about race and gender issues became their only publicly discussed policy positions nationwide. Without a significant pool of farm or mine workers, labor unions were irrelevant, so all that was left in politics was screaming about minorities. Without any school kids left, schools shrank and were consolidated and home schooling took off, leaving parents free to teach biblical science and ignore reality.

Of course, small town minnesotans are still happy to live off big gubmint giebs, but in their minds, that's not the same as "welfare" (which is something the "libs" invented to make black people vote for them). Most of them have now bought into the idea that they are temporarily embarrassed millionaires. Bernie Sanders is the bad guy because he has a $2 million dollar house and wants to raise taxes on billionaires, but the T guy is based because he's (supposedly) worth billions and wants to... hurt the right people, I guess? Trying to explain rightoid logic becomes difficult when you try to make it sound reasonable but that's another discussion.

>fearmongering about race
Is it fear if it is really happening
>All race groups have grown recently in MN, but between 2010 and 2018, the state has added five times as many People of Color as non-Hispanic White residents
>Between 2010 and 2018, the fastest growing racial group in Minnesota was the Black or African American population, which grew by 36%, adding more than 96,500 people. Second fastest was the Asian population, which grew by 32%, adding 69,800

These figures (from mn.gov) are obviously not sustainable. In Europe africans have negative tax benfit, with somalis being one of the worst.
I would rather have good public transport and no somalis, than bad public transport and somalis.

I'm in Midtown Houston. I'm curious if they changed their calculation recently because I swore this was higher before, but either way I'd take it with a huge grain of salt. It's true the area I live in is more walkable than most in the city, I live pretty close to the one useful train line of the two light rails that we have, but I'd still say it would be incredibly inconvenient to live car-free here.
>>
>>1980187
According to the website this is the 2nd most walkable area in Houston, so my advice would be to not move to Houston.

You're just less intelligent than I am, and probably than most people, and there are certain things that someone as primitive as you literally can't aspire to.

Location: Walk Transit Bike
Where I grew up: 30 18 38
Current city: 59 44 74
Current neighborhood: 74 50 86
The "notjustbikes" video where he talks about getting shot at with an airsoft gun in the back yard of a friend for entertainment, and it being like house arrest until I got a car hit close to home.
Comparing my childhood to my best friend's who grew up in a neighborhood with walk/transit/bike scores of 61/40/69, it's a whole different experience.
I had access to a small, minimal park without playgrounds or a skate park, one nature area with a bike path, a neighborhood Wal-Mart, and enough sticker weeds that a bike tire would get a dozen punctures per mile, and there were areas where they piled up enough that even skateboards and longboards could slip on them. The sticker problem has been eradicated since my childhood there. That Wal-Mart opening up was a huge event in my life for having something to do outside. There was a Wendy's and a taco bell built there when I was in my mid teens.
He had access to in short walking distance two great parks with jungle gyms and skate parks, the closer of them probably being the largest in the state, pools, a movie theater that at that time was cheap, now it's expensive, post office, print services, restaurants, a craft shop, video game shop, bike and board shop, etc. and a tram line that brought him to haunted houses in October, and the largest concert and sports venue in not just the state but the area of many adjacent states as well.
He grew up so socially and independent compared to me.

I live 1.5 blocks from a grocery store. Not a convenience/dollar store, one with fresh produce and pretty much any food/drink/everyday goods you can think of. Self checkout too. So fucking comfy to walk down, get what you need, and be back within 15 minutes. Finance wise I should buy a house at this point, but I don't want to give up the convenience.
