America's Top Neighborhoods for Trick-or-Treating

Once again, the fine people at the real estate web portal Zillow have assembled their top 20 cities for trick-or-treating. This year they've gone one step further and identified the top 5 neighborhoods in each city for enterprising candy collectors.

"Grab your broomsticks and spooky masks — the Zillow Trick-or-Treat Index is finally here!" For the third year in a row, San Francisco tops Zillow's list, with Boston, Honolulu, San Jose and Seattle completing the top five.

So what makes a city trick-or-treatable? Walkability, density, and safety are some of the key factors used in the company's methodology. "Taking the most holistic approach, the Trick-or-Treat Index is calculated using four equally weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials."
