Streets functioning as important components of urban public space are not only the primary carriers of traffic but also essential spaces for individuals’ daily activities, including recreation and communication. The paper highlights the social characteristics of streets by integrating them into one single index of vitality. The application of open recourse data combined with empirical research forms the foundation of a quantitative exploration on the street vitality of Zhoujiadu Community in Shanghai. Supported by the ideology of street urbanism, this paper defines the concept of “street vitality”, and then constructs a quantitative evaluation index system. Afterwards, a multiple linear regression model is developed to explore the main influential factors of street vitality. This work evidences the relationship between the environment and citizens’ activities and is beneficial to the potential improvement of street space quality and the enhancement of streets with higher vitality. Results from this work proved that the constituent factors of social function density, mixing degree of social functions, distance from the nearest subway station and green view have strong impacts on street vitality, among which the social function density and mixing degree of social functions are paramount.
