Worthington's BEST neighborhoods for Trick-or-Treat

Worthington is one of two Franklin County communities that did NOT Trick-or-Treat Thursday. Worthington and Grandview Heights and some Southern Delaware County communities are having Trick-or-Treat on Sunday, Halloween.

Zillow did an index of the BEST neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat for some US cities, Atlanta, San Diego, Los Angeles. Zillow did not do Columbus, in Central Ohio, but if Zillow did I would think some Worthington neighborhoods would rank high for Best Neighborhoods for "Trick-or-Treat" in the Columbus area.

What are the BEST Worthington neighborhoods for Trick-or-Treat?

Happy Halloween

Is Zillow better at predicting ‘Trick-or-Treat” loot than they are with home values? How do they do it?

From the Zillow Blog:

“There is a common belief that wealthy neighborhoods are the Holy Grail for harvesting the most Halloween candy. However, to provide a more holistic approach to trick-or-treating, the Zillow Trick-or-Treat Housing Index was calculated using four equally weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index (ZHVI), population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials. Based on those variables, the Index represents neighborhoods that will provide the most candy, with the least walking and safety risks.”

Best Worthington neighborhoods for ‘Trick-or-Treat” based on Zillow + Walk Score + crime data. I am unfamiliar with Relocation Essentials. The online resource for crime data I am familiar with has only City of Columbus data, none of the suburbs, no Worthington data. Or did not have anything other than Columbus data, the last time I looked.

BEST Worthington neighborhoods for Trick-or-Treat?

Perhaps a stab in the dark based on knowing the Worthington neighborhoods? Which Worthington neighborhoods are the BEST for Trick-or-Treat?

Old Worthington because surely some of those old houses have got to be haunted? Haunted has to add to the ambiance but do they give good treats?

Worthington Estates because it seems like lots of kids live there?

Medick Estates? They can afford good candy but those lots are huge, probably does not get as good a "Walk Score" as some Worthington neighborhoods.

Colonial Hills back in the 50s and 60s Colonial Hills would have been the neighborhood to live in for Trick-or-Treat. Maybe even back in the beginning in the 1940s. Families, friendly (the sign says so), small lots get a lotta Halloween loot quick.

Did Worthington's ghost "Irwin" run a business out of town?

they did 20 cities this year... I think they did Seattle the first Thanksgiving they were in existence...  I think that was just high priced homes would give out the best candy but there is more data available now.


Zillow + Walk Score + crime data

They did not do us, Worthington or Columbus so I am speculating.
