NOTE: In the computation of Smoothness Score, blocks are weighted by length. For description of methodology, rating categories, and weighting procedures, see Technical Appendix. Citywide and borough smoothness scores are rounded to the nearest whole number; jolt scores are rounded to the nearest tenth. For ranking purposes, community district scores are rounded to the nearest hundredth.
