So what does all this have to do with walkability? Quite a lot actually because accessibility is such a large part of walkability. Accessibility can be limited by highways, lack of sidewalks, lack of wheelchair access, and, in parts of New Rochelle, lack of access to waterways such as the fence off Titus Mill Pond. Having said that I hasten to add that New Rochelle is blessed with more access to its coastline than many...most?...other settlements along the Westchester shore of Long Island Sound. We have some fabulous parks which I'll cover in later posts but time to get back to our second New Rochelle Challenge walk since that's the title of this entry. For this walk the theme overall was really accessibility - to waterways, to bus routes and to the five senses.
