My home town, the founder hated the idea of row homes and required that homes be a certain distance apart. Back in the day, Camden had some of the best row homes, but overall, I have to say Philly and Alexandria have some of the best row homes I've ever seen.

Another cool thing is even though the block after block has lots of similarities, every block is a little different and around every corner there is something new to see. These neighborhoods are best seen at street level and on foot to really get the feel
