In April we released our WalkUP Wake-Up Call: Metro New York, our walkability study of America’s largest metropolitan region. We partnered with the Regional Plan Association (RPA) on this study, and the RPA is planning to use many of the study’s findings as they present its Fourth Regional Plan later this year. This study – which follows reports for the DC, Atlanta, Boston and Detroit metro areas – was the first whereby CREUA not only evaluated the economic impact of walkable urban communities but also its social equity implications. The study was released in three separate venues throughout the New York area – Manhattan, Long Island and Northern New Jersey.
