Western Pennsylvania is more thinly populated than eastern Pennsylvania, so you won't see rowhouses as extensively simply because the towns are smaller. You'll still find a few blocks of rowhouses in most small towns, though.

Thanks! Can't take all the credit since those pics are other people's work. And yeah, it would be nice to see pics of other rowhouse cities.

There's 3 rowhouse-ish houses on my street here in Los Angeles. We call them the roaches. My dad lived in one. Has a railroad apartment style layout.

Los Angeles would be one of the last US cities I would ever associate with having anything that resembles row-houses.

My image of "row house city" will forever be tied to D.C. because what always struck me riding in from Maryland into the city were endless clusters of row houses - much more so than monuments and government buildings actually.

The other city that caught my attention was San Francisco, but it was a very different layout of row houses - densely built over hills that seemed to go on and on.

Row house-ish Just because the shape. Obvious put off is the fact that they are detatched, have driveways and are set back from the sidewalk. But it always reminded me of them. Ugly buildings though.
