Livable Neighbourhoods

After developing and researching  the checklist criteria for livable neighborhoods in IwB’s “Renovate Your Neighbourhood”, I got to say, I’m a sucker for a good neighbourhood rating system.

Via New York Magazine (April 19, 2010).  They named Park Slope as the best neighbourhood.

The ranking criteria was based on the following.

Housing Cost: 25 percent
Transit: 13 percent
Shopping and Services: 9 percent
Safety: 8 percent
Restaurants: 8 percent
Schools: 6 percent
Diversity: 6 percent
Creative Capital: 6 percent
Housing Quality: 5 percent
Green Space: 5 percent
Health and Environment: 5 percent
Nightlife: 4 percent
