are there bright colored, gritty rows like this anywhere in america? anywhere near new england perhaps? all i see in boston are the stone and brick rows
Old post and all, but I'll chime in anyway. The first picture reminds me of Rainbow Row in Charleston SC. I've seen something similar to the second on the east side of Cincinnati but I don't know that it's too common there. Wood rowhouses are kind of unusual. The third reminds me of Pittsburgh.

The Shipoke neighborhood of Harrisburg, PA offers color with rowhomes, though not quite in the same way. The City of Harrisburg: Shipoke District (http://www.harrisburgpa.gov/Visitor/center_city/Shipoke_District.html - broken link)

Pennsylvania and Maryland have some colorful rowhouses...actually all kinds of rowhouses and interesting architecture. On the eastern side of the U.S., that would probably be the most similar.

San Francisco has tons though.
