Around The Neighborhood

I have run across a couple of interesting websites as I have been thinking about neighborhoods and ministry on my street.

The first one is Sterling’s BestPlaces. On this site you can type in a city or zip code and find information about cost of living, family statistics, housing values, population, schools and other facts about your immediate community. I used to use the U.S. Census Bureau website to get this kind of information. BestPlaces will save you a lot of time.

The second site is Walk Score. When you type in your address here you’ll get a “walkability” score. Do you live where it is convenient to walk to grocery and retail stores, coffee shops, eateries, churches, schools, pubs?  Or, are you “car dependent?” You already know this, of course, but you may like to see what the website says. Walk Score could be helpful to you if you’re looking for a place to live that is more “walker friendly.”
