We tried our German address and it worked, and then plugged in one of our previous US addresses during the time that we we were an associate at the international law firm of Paul Weiss et al., headquartered in New York City -- an address on New York's Upper East Side -- which obtained a rare score of 100 as a Walker's Paradise, which we can confirm - everything there is within walking distance, except things like golf courses:

A good walkscore means that many amenities are within walking distance, one of the advantages of urban living, also called "the urban advantage - or - the urban revolution" in other contexts. In the walking context, people in walkable neighborhoods actually do weigh less than citizens who live in sprawling suburbia and who drive everywhere they go. Urban living is simply more efficient economically - and if it forces you to walk - is for that reason healthier than suburbia.
We live in Europe where walking is a way of life, as opposed to the United States where people often drive their car wherever they go, even if it is very close to their residence. This is both unnecessarily expensive, environmentally undesirable and generally unfortunate, as walking can provide many health benefits.
