URBANIST PRINCIPLE LIVABILITY CALCULATOR
Deciding where to live in a particular city goes beyond the cost of renting or purchasing a home. The Urbanist Principle Livability Calculator provides a simple interface to measure the desirability and livability of various Manhattan neighborhoods based on a set of urbanist principles. Users can weigh or eliminate factors according to what they deem most important to create a customized textual representation. It can be a valuable tool for determining, for example, if a user wants to move in or out of a particular neighborhood or if a user is trying to decide between living in two or more different neighborhoods. (Note: This is a prototype and only the "East Village" is linked to the score page.)
