NY Post reported on our article about Neighborhood Attractiveness and BMI

Sunday’s NY Post included an article entitled “City Waist Lands” about our work on neighborhood attractiveness and BMI in New York City.  The research paper was originally published in the October issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.  The research shows that across neighborhoods in NYC, the presence of sidewalk cafés, density of landmark buildings, and density of street trees, street features thought to make walking pleasant and safe, were associated with lower BMI.  A companion paper on this topic was published the Annals of Behavioral Medicine.
