Forest Hills is gorgeous. You feel like you're in Europe when you're walking through certain sections because of the beautiful architecture. Nothing beats it.

Unfortunately Reno doesn't have much in the way of rowhomes; however, they are currently building some:

I absolutely LOVE DC's rowhouses. BTW, just a little lesson for some people...if the houses are detatched, they aren't considered rowhouses. Some nice detatched houses posted here, but if they don't connect they are not technically rowhouses. Harrisburg is a city of rowhouses as well, with a blend of Baltimore, Philadelphia and even dare I say Boston styled brownstones.

Downtown's south street:

As far as I'm concerned, there are 7 major row house cities in the country, and are ranked as follows:

(1) Philadelphia
(2) Baltimore
(3) Washington DC
(4) New York City
(5) San Francisco
(6) Boston
(7) Pittsburgh

Now, here are some row houses from my hometown of Pittsburgh:
