Even many small towns began using row housing for a time. Many "rust belt" towns from the northeast and Midwest have a row-house downtown area with the first floor often being commercial.

Including my own current hometown, Montour Falls, NY.

Row housing is largely a Mid-Atlantic phenomenon----Philly, Balt, DC, probably parts of NYC, and subsequent tonws/cities in between. Boston really isn't a row house city--it's more of a triple-decker city, with some bow-shaped brick townhouses...

That Philly pic is cool.

It's hard to find good pics of Pittsburgh's rowhouse hoods, but here is one of Bloomfield...

This is most definitely true in the degree and % of its cities. In PA especially the eastern half. Virtually every older small city is all row-housing.

Chicago in itself is unique in housing even in the Midwest. But some pre-twentieth century neighborhoods have part blocks as true rows to homes of many varieties butted up against each other to mere inches apart.... it creates virtual-rows but of much more variety in the same block.

I like this north of downtown Chicago view. It's virtual row-housing..... but again, no whole blocks are solid with a attached wall of row-housing. . Then you will have a full-sized alleyway in back. Some have small yards and/or garages or just additional parking for multi-residential units as many are multi-residential today or added infill as such, still on standard city lots, with frontage as is the standard layout of fronts with the curb, then green-space, sidewalk and more green in front of the home. It makes for GREAT Aesthetically pleasant walkable blocks and landscaping for added value.

I always see even a couple feet of front green-space.... enhances a block tremendously. Many blocks in true row-housing cities in the Mid-Atlantic region with wide-ish sidewalks ..... in even gentrification could use part of that front for a green-section in front.

Philly, Baltimore and portions of others will remain our MOST true Row-housing cities in the Nation by far. No denying that. San Francisco is another exception to the Mid-Atlantic region. Though I see it more as homes butted up to each other as virtual-rows over true-rows. IMO.

Though there are true Row-Housing sections of old-stock buildings in Chicago.... most merely create a look as virtual-row housing blocks. As the city chose fully detached close-knit housing for its 20th century built and virtually banned tenement-style built blocks after its Great-Fire. Boston went to Triple-Decker's but still some are butted up against each other too.

North of downtown Chicago looking toward it.
Probably its densest neighborhoods built late 1800s.
My favorite picture as it is my Tablet screen-saver photo too.
