By Team Agorafy September 20, 2017

It’s no surprise that New York City is the most walkable city in the United States. Everything in the Big Apple makes it the ideal place for pedestrians, even its not so popular subway system.  The city has miles of bike lanes, bike share programs, and there’s always public transportation options — the subway, the LIRR, buses everywhere.

According to Walkscore.com, the Big Apple has ranked first on the list (89). Second is the San Francisco (86), followed by Boston (81). These are all metrics that Walk Score takes into account when coming up with its rankings for each city in the United States.
