Castro St. in Mountain is also a nice walkable part of the Bay Area. Theoretically you can take the train there even...

A lawn bowling place just 12 kilometres away. Terrific!

Mountain? Did you mean Mountain View perhaps? A number of the wealthy little Silicon Valley towns have very walkable downtowns.

Pretty much anywhere in Puxi inside the Outer Ring Road is incredibly walkable, but I suppose if I am forced to pick a single neighbourhood I'll definitely say the Former French Concession in Xuhui / Huangpu District.

Westlake is La's most urban area though. I don't see that changing.

The Beverly Grove/Fairfax District could move up too. There's alot going on in that area.
DTLA is the most urban part of LA. Why is this even a question?

Look back at the first post--the parameters of the thread specified choosing a neighborhood that is NOT your city's immediate downtown.

In Chicago I would go with Lincoln Park. It has the extensive park (larger than central park and really long/linear for easy movement up and down the lake), vibrant commercial streets, and nice/quiet residential areas.
