Philadelphia is seventh-most walkable city

    Philadelphia is the seventh-most walkable city. We got beat out of the CNBC rankings by obvious cities like San Francisco, Boston and New York. D.C. and Honolulu also took better spots.

    The average commute for people in the area is 30.6 minutes — a full three minutes shorter than No. 8 Chicago. Of course, our whole entry is about New York and Philadelphia being the “sixth borough.” But we’ll let Philly Post handle the rant.
