Is Grand Rapids a walkable City?

Earlier today I was reading an article on AOL that published the “Most Walkable Cities” and believe it or not, Grand Rapids, MI was NOT one of these cities out of 50 different locations. I took the time to look through the entire list for Michigan and found that in comparison to an 89% rating for New York, which was #1, Grand Rapids came in with a 54%.

I guess when I look back on the article, it does mention “large cities”, so apparently that is why Detroit was #31 on the list while we did not even get a nod.

I also went back into that site just now too and by putting in the name of our city, I came up with a “Very Walkable” 89% for Grand Rapids, MI. That makes me feel better because I think walking in the downtown area of our city is just great. Let me know what your thoughts are on this.
