What is "social infrastructure"?
Eric Klinenberg has popularized this term, which is defined in his book "Palaces for the People" and defined, among other ways, as "Public institutions, such as libraries, schools, playgrounds, and athletic fields, are vital parts of the social infrastructure. So too are community gardens and other green spaces that invite people into the public realm. Nonprofit organizations, including churches and civic associations, act as social infrastructure when they have an established physical space where people can assemble, as do regularly scheduled markets for food, clothing, and other consumer goods."

Green View Index statistics for 2449 W Rice St, Chicago, IL
Higher numbers and darker green are better
The citywide average is 22.88 out of 100. While higher scores are generally shadier blocks, the highest score of 100 isn't desirable because it would mean that the street view image taken at a particular point on a block was completely covered by trees or vegetation, and that the camera saw nothing else (like buildings). Most scores in Chicago are between 25 and 37.
Data comes from Google Street View imagery using a method devised by the Treepedia project at MIT's Senseable City Lab, and collected by Mike Bingaman and Chicago Cityscape.
