What a Walk Score in Stamford, Norwalk and Branford Really Means

Stamford Walk ScoreA Walk Score helps you find a walkable place to live so that you can run your daily errands or enjoy a night out around your home without having to drive anywhere. A score between 90 and 100 is classified as a Walker’s Paradise where daily errands do not require a vehicle. A score resulting between 70 and 89 is considered Very Walkable, which means most errands can be accomplished on foot. Scores are typically seen as good if the number is 70 or above, and many real estate search sites, such as Trulia and Zillow, feature walk scores prominently.

A Walk Score analyzes a property’s proximity to amenities. Maximum points are awarded for closeness, and points are removed for busy or deteriorating streets and other obstructions that make walking longer or more difficult or less safe. Our Stamford apartments, 77 & 65 Prospect Street, Hoyt Bedford and The Morgan all sport a walk score of 80 or above. In Stamford’s historic downtown district, which is where 77 & 65 Prospect Street is located, the Walk Score is an impressive 97. Essentially, our communities in Stamford give our residents easy walking access to schools, shopping, arts, dining and more.

Besides being utterly convenient, walkability also offers benefits to your health, the environment and your finances.

A high walk score also means fewer cars on the road that create pollution and potentially even prevent you from buying the second largest household expense, which happens to be a vehicle.
