How Walkable is our neighborhood?

Date May 22, 2008

It has been said the first 1000 feet from your door determines the walkability of your neighborhood. The folks at have developed an index called the “walkscore” which purports to analyze how walkable a particular address is. Though the index is clearly imperfect, it is an interesting exercise. By entering an address, you can calculate the walkscore for that address based on a number of factors.

Check your walkscore here. If you’re a Crown Hill resident, leave a comment below identifying your approximate location and your score.

    95th and 12th gets a walk score of 55 out of 100. Interesting some of the things they consider important.

    92nd and Mary scored a 60. I would have scored it higher because its a nice place to pleasure walk. It is also much, much easier to walk to Safeway and Walgreens then hassle with the traffic and getting in and out of the parking lots.

    9th NW and 100th gets a 43, which seems a bit low to me. We walk or bike to most fun activities on weekends. I think our main issue with walking in Crown Hill is the lack of sidewalks, and lack of safe crossings on busier streets like 100th.

    13th between 95th and 100th gets a score of 52 out of 100. I had to laugh that the Library Cafe was mistakenly listed as a “Library”. My biggest issue with 13th is the number of trucks parked at all angles along the street. Makes walking difficult and I’m amazed some the neighborhood kids don’t get hit as they dodge around these vehicles.

    14th and 103rd gets a score of 34 out of 100. Identified Small Faces as a school, but didn’t mention Whitman Middle School. It’s a good half mile walk if you want to shop in any of the nearby commercial areas. I now try to get off the bus at 85th to do small shopping errands and walk the rest of the way home. Lack of sidewalks and sometimes the traffic around the old Crown Hill School can be challenging. Won’t walk 15th above Holman because of the traffic and lack of sidewalks.

    NW 92nd and 8th NW gets a score of 60. The admittedly crappy sidewalks along 8th and the curbs east of 8th help a lot, so I’d settle for just about any sort of street upgrade to the west.

    At 9020 12th Ave NW I got a score of 70 out of 100. As far as what is within walking distance I couldn’t agree more however they don’t seem to talk into account that most of that walking is walking without sidewalks, negotiating cars year around and puddles 7-8 months out of the year!

    As far as being able to get to places with a short trip Crown Hill does very well, it’s the experience that is really lacking with the unkempt yards and lack of sidewalks

    My new house at 4th Ave NW and Holman Road scored a 66, which the site deems “Somewhat Walkable”. With 4 more points I would be bumped up to “Very Walkable” which the site notes one can get by without the use of a car. I do own a Prius but I take the bus to work, I can walk across the street to the QFC or Starbucks or any of several restaurants. I would say overall the score is reasonable.
