Ranked One of Top Three in Northeast with New York City and Philadelphia!

A recent study conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association in conjunction with Prevention magazine ranked Jersey City as one of the top 12 best walking cities in the United States, and the magazine and the APMA presented Jersey City Mayor Glenn D. Cunningham with an award during a ceremony at City Hall.

Dr. Nancy Kaplan, a New Jersey podiatrist, and Prevention’s Deputy Editor Amy O'Connor presented the award to Mayor Glenn D. Cunningham and First Lady Sandra Bolden-Cunningham during a ceremony at City Hall on April 5th.

“This is a great achievement for Jersey City, because it indicates that people are getting out and either walking to work or walking to the various modes of public transportation,” Mayor Cunningham said. “Jersey City is home to Liberty State Park, the walkways on the Hudson River and so many sites and attractions for the residents and visitors.”

The study took into account such factors as population, percentage of people who walk to work, air quality index, crime rate, pedestrian deaths, APMA members practicing in the area, the number of walking and bike paths, the number of parks, the number of recreation and fitness stores and the number of health clubs.

According to a release from the APMA, the rate at which obesity and poor physical health is quickly catching up to tobacco as the leading cause of death in America, and the association and Prevention want to help reverse these trends by encouraging Americans to incorporate walking into their lives. Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association is the leading professional society for foot and ankle specialists in the nation, with more than 12,000 members.

“I am proud that the people of Jersey City are taking their health seriously and making the effort to walk when possible,” Cunningham said.

The APMA and Prevention broke the nation into four geographical sections for their study: the Northeast, the Midwest, the South and the West, with three cities being named in each category. Jersey City was named as one of the best Walking Cities in the Northeast, along with New York City and Philadelphia.

The results of the joint study appear in the April edition of Prevention, America’s leading health magazine, and the 11th largest magazine in the nation, which has been providing readers with the most current information on health, fitness, nutrition, and healthy, active lifestyles since 1950.
