Plural of anecdote is not data, etc etc., but....
When I moved to Atlanta I lived right in the heart of Buckhead and was two blocks from my office. I walked every day. It was awesome. A 10 minute walk was faster than a 30 minute (with traffic) commute, plus I didn't have to pay for parking. And I just enjoyed walking.
After two months I realized I never drove anymore, I just used the MARTA or Uber, so I sold my car.
The year I lived in Atlanta like that was awesome. No car payment, no car hassles, and I could drink at dinner every night without worries. Now I moved away from the city to a small town and had to buy a car again, and I'm actually sorta sad about it.
