Cincinnati Ranks 18th for 'Most Walkable' Cities

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Queen City ranks No. 18 out of 30 major cities in a new study on walkable urban neighborhoods.

The rankings were released by Smart Growth America – a coalition of advocacy groups, focused on metropolitan development.

Rankings were created by tracking the percentage of office, and multi-family space located in walkable neighborhoods -- referred to in the study as WalkUps.

Three East Coast cities took the top spots, including New York, Washington, D.C. and Boston, respectively. Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle round out the top 6.

Smart Growth America says its findings have implications on social equitably, because low transportation costs and residents' ease of access their workplaces helps to offset the higher cost of housing in urban areas.
