I agree, the northeast has most of them. OntheRoad, I was going to mention Albany, New York, too! I remember the ones down near the waterfront.

Check the northeast -- you'll find them there.

That's pretty much the only kind of house in San Francisco.

The ones in San Francisco are more ornate and prettier, actually, not like those sample photos. Maybe they just want something colorful and next to each other.

Mainly true on style, although there are plenty of brick rows in S. Boston, too. I'm surrounded by street upon street of them. However, you'd be hard-pressed to find any colorfully painted rowhouses in any of these parts. I've seen a stray here & there in Cambridge & Braintree, but they're single family & the colors are in the cooler realm, rather than bright like the OP's pics.

Remember that house near the Braintree Mall painted like the American flag in front & the rest purple, that caused an uproar from neighbors 25-yrs ago? Don't know if it's still painted the same, but whether brick, stone, wood or vinyl siding, conservative colors are definitely the norm in every area of Boston.

Baltimore has lots and lots of rowhouses, but not the type like in Canada

It looks like this

Same with Boston

Wow, I am impressed, some really nice ones. I love the colorful ones posted by the OP. Before we moved to MA, we lived in a brick rowhouse in Greenbelt, MD, built in the 30's. I loved that house, much better quality than anything you would be able to get new today.

I can't find anything about then here in Louisville so I guess we don't have them. (unless it is the same as town houses or patio homes.....)
