The above map shows the 100 metro areas with the highest fraction of people who primarily walk to work (or at least make that claim to surveyors) This comes from Governing's By The Numbers blog. That big circle in upstate NY is Ithaca, where I live, and where just over 15% of people say they walk to work. Ithaca is a pretty compact walkable place, so I can well believe this nine months out of the year. Color me a bit skeptical as to how many are walking in January, however.
The top sections of the list are dominated by small college towns.
