NEW YORK ( MainStreet) -- Can you get a haircut, grab groceries and pick up a pizza without starting an engine? Congratulations, you live in a convenient city.Neighborhood ranking site Walk Score says a convenient town should have a main street or public space at its center, enough people to keep public transit running frequently and a mix of housing and businesses, lots of parks and other spaces. It should also kick in some amenities designed around pedestrians, schools, workplaces and "complete streets" (read: no cul-de-sacs) designed for pedestrians, cyclists and transit.
