What's Your "Pub Shed?"

A Cinco de Mayo mapping exercise leaves happy trails.

While the "ped shed" presents a measure of overall walkability, on PlaceShakers, Scott Doyon presents the "pub shed." Are you within a quarter mile walk of your favorite watering hole? Doyon reflects:

"I find ped sheds especially interesting as they relate to economic development and the social fabric of community. That is, if people are out and walking then where are they ending up and who are they crossing paths with along the way?"

"The fun part (at least for geeks like me) is that you can do an exercise like this for any of your community's shared amenities - coffee shops, schools, parks, etc. I just find pubs especially relevant because, if ever there was a business you should be walking to (and from) rather than driving, it's your bar."
