Best Old House Neighborhoods 2009: Walking

Unique, tight-knit neighborhoods are precisely what we looked for in selecting the winners of our second annual Best Old House Neighborhoods contest—places that might not be on your radar but deserve to be. Like last year, we relied on our good friends at to help us contact thousands of neighborhood groups, real estate agents, and preservation societies to get their takes on the best places to track down, fix up, and fall head of heels for older homes.

These 16 places are great for walking to local businesses, restaurants, parks, and schools, with plenty of sidewalks shaded by mature trees.
