New Yorkers Get Daily Exercise Just By Getting Around

New Yorkers get most of their physical activity from walking to the subway or running errands, not jogging or going to the gym, says a new report from the New York Dept. of Health.

Noah Kazis of Streetsblog reports on the "bulletin" from the Dept. of Health:

"The evidence is pretty overwhelming - just 30 minutes of walking or biking each weekday reduces your risk of premature death by 20 percent - and the department's recommendations are clear: New Yorkers should drive less, and the city should build the infrastructure to make walking, biking, and riding transit as safe and convenient as possible."
