If you had to, could you live in an urban city and either walk or take public transporation everywhere?
Yes, I’ve done it before. I can’t walk as far as I used to, but I could manage buses if they ran regularly. (The closest one to my house runs a couple in the morning and a couple in the afternoon — and they don’t even go where I want to.)
I would love New York or Boston, but I’d even take New Haven.
I am doing it now. The Montreal metro is across the street, the bus stops in front of our building,the train system connections are very easy, but we walk a lot. Some days we walk as much as 7 miles. We are in good shape.
Sunday afternoon someone walked up 4 flights of stairs with me. They were amazed, I did not huff and puff or break a bead of perspiration.
Someone pointed that out to me. I hadn’t realized that I was in such good walking form.
Yes, and I would love it. It’s nice living in a rural community but I dislike having to drive *everywhere* to get anything.
I grew up in the city. I’ve lost my city genes, but if I had to, I could get them back again.
Yes. The biggest issue I have had with doing that is grocery shopping. Everything else is simple if the city is set up for it.
There are various ways I’ve dealt with that issue, but the best way is a store that delivers!
I’ve only lived where cars were a necessity. But, other than toting groceries and not being able to walk very far, I think I could handle it. Basically, I’m pretty lazy.
Probably not! I’m much too impatient. I want to get there NOW! Plus, if it were hot, I definitely couldn’t do it. I guess I’m spoiled by my A/C! But kudos to those of you who can!
