I really hope that's implying Boulder and not Denver. I live in Denver, it's not walkable unless you both live and work immediately downtown. Everything else is midwest level sprawling cage hellscape full of single family homes, once every 60-90 minute buses (if they bother showing up at all), and light rail that randomly drops service in the middle of the day down to once every 45 mins. And even then, you destination could easily be 2 miles from the lightrail stop, like in the tech center, a shitscape. Picture all the sprawl and curvy, inefficient roads of suburbs, but instead of houses it's corporate office parks. No stores in walking distance for much of it (some have coffee shops at the bottom, but it's still a walk to get there). Everything revolves around the car. And cagers line up in bumper to bumper every single fucking day to go down there. NYC is walkable, as is SF and possibly Boston and Seattle/portland, of what I know. I wouldn't say anything else is. I'm a no-cage and am in the extreme minority here.
Boulder is walkable but it's tiny, and most people have a car for commuting to denver anyway. Light rail got delayed 30 fucking years, three oh, and all we have between the two is a shitty bus. If there was a light rail it would be the fucking party rail 24/7 and make a fortune. But nooooooooo. Can't have nice things, some incompetent obese woman in government paper-pushing has to declare laying some track down to be impossible, besides the fact that they manage to lay down cageway all the time. >>1212627
Essentially. It's all so tiring. They let the hobos take over all the primo downtown real estate, so I can either deal with a 20 minute bikeride or deal with the place stinking of hobo BO/piss all the time. What a great choice. Just imagine if they kicked all the hobos out of the mission blocks...that shit is prime, just prime, so close to uptown. And it's left to be a hobo slum.
