Why does Shade Parade Nashville love New York?
Without even trying, goal of greater than 10k steps per day is easily accomplishable. Walk scores of 87.5 and greater. America's most walkable city. Incredibly amusing with loads of visually interesting things to see. On a grid. Numerous parks, benches, plazas.
Everywhere you look - people walking.
As Nashvillian's travel and benefit from the ease of walkability in other cities - maybe they will return to demand more walkable landscapes here.
