philly 5th most walkable city...

... according to the Inky and some site called walkscore.com. San Fran, NYC, Boston and Chicago comprise the top four.

Some people envision Philly as a rusty metal cauldron filled with humidity from which stray bullets occasionally emerge, so I always like to point out that it's very walkable, like a "big small town." The two thing that set it apart from Manhattan, in my opinion, are 1) that one can easily walk the entire city center (granted, Center City is probably the size of a large Manhattan neighborhood), and 2) that the Philadelphia grid is laid out on a much more human scale (blocks in Manhattan can be very, very long).

I'm not sure if this is a lightning on the third lap, but it's a solid three red shells.
