tcave360,

Some great examples of row houses in those photos.
Really like how colorful some of the rows are.
But there were also several photos of blocks of residential over commercial (mixed-use).
Although they are busy neighborhoods with great looking buildings, it is different than row houses.

Don't most small towns in the U.S. have row houses in their historic district?

Just about every small town I've seen does in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, etc...

In California, there's San Francisco and... Main Street USA, Disneyland?

I don't believe CA outside of SF has any rowhouses.

Small towns throughout the country may have attached commercial buildings on their main streets, but these are not what you would call row houses.

In terms of actual residential neighborhoods, true rowhouses are essentially confined to the East Coast.

East cost isn't even precise, because as was noted upthread, they're largely absent from New England (except Boston) and much of the South.

% housing 1-unit attached:

Philly — 59%
Pittsburgh — 16%
Cincinnati — 5%
St. Louis — 4%
San Francisco: 15%
Baltimore: 53%
DC: 26%
Camden, NJ: 52%
Boston: 6%
Brooklyn: 8%

Does not count houses that are very close, but don't share a wall (common in St. Louis, San Francisco). Or where attached housing units are stacked above each other rather than just next to each other (most NYC brownstones).

Was Queens available?

Even a city like Philly has many rows that are wlak ups - probably not as many as would in BK though

Interesting stats but probably make sense

Imagine Trenton might be up there as well though lower than Camden

Queens, NY — 9%
Trenton, NJ — 43%

Brooklyn feels obviously more row house than Queens, but Queens tends to have short non-subdivided row houses. And yea, I noticed a lot of 4 story rowhouses in Philly [Center City and a bit in the nearby portions of South Philly]. Which are the densest parts of Philly for that reasons.

scale-wise, Brooklyn brownstones are close in scale to Amsterdam outside the canals:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Amste...,45.61,,0,-6.4

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Park+...80.46,,0,-4.37

except the NY ones got a stoop! I like the narrower style of the Amsterdam one, and parking is probably more convenient.

viewed from above:

looks rather continuous
