  1. Neat Website Intoeyes.

    Here is one I found a couple years ago that breaks down Atlanta’s neighborhoods and how walkable they are. It is entitled Car-Free in Atlanta, and the ratings are based on the writers opinions. It’s a long article and the neighborhood ratings start appearing about 1/2 way down the page. West End got 3 stars (Same as Va-Hi and Decatur). Lenox Mall area got 2.5, Midtown got 3.5. Anyway, here is the link.

    I know whenever I leave the car at home and walk (or bike) to places in West End it just reminds me how much I like my village.
