I really like to own one. A nice looking one that is. if I had some money. LOL. I know there are many that were built for the poor/working class, in some cities. But are there any that were built for the middle class or for the Rich in your city? What is the neighborhood? Show some photos of these beautiful homes! So pretend that you were trying to sell me one. I really like historic ones. But if you have 'new' ones that are been built in your city and they look attractive, show me as well. No need to post photos from the inside of a house. Outside photos of the street scape is enough.

I live in one in Portland, OR... people always stare at my house when they walk or drive by, so I guess it's "attractive".

Jersey City has tons of them.

The Downtown neighborhoods of Paulus Hook, Van Vorst Park, Harsimus Cove, and Hamilton Park have, by far, the most stately brownstones in the city. You can get a whole one anywhere from $900K to $2million depending on the size, street, how it's been preserved, etc. Most are multi-unit, so you could get a nice 1-bedroom condo for about $300-$450K in one of them at today's prices.

There are also lots of brick rowhouses in areas outside downtown. Journal Square, McGinley Square, Bergen/Lafayette are the areas you'll find most of the brick rows. The cost (depending on nabe, street, etc.) can be anywhere from $400K-$1.2M. A single unit will run anywhere from about $180K-$400K usually (some nabes are scary and cheap, others nicer and pricier).

These will run There are lots of rows with siding/shingle facades in all neighborhoods, especially in the Heights, Journal Square, and Greenville--the neighborhoods farthest from downtown. These are also usually multi-family buildings. They'll run you anywhere from $300K-$800K for the whole building, $100K-$400K for a unit.

Frederick has some nice ones! most were built from the later 1700s to the earlier 1900s


Another view of Frederick, Maryland on Flickr - Photo Sharing!


Market Street, Frederick on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

etc it all depends where you go. there are really fancy ones as well as the more plain ones. prices highly depend on what street/area its in. some go really cheap and others cost ridiculous amounts. The Town is really nice though. 45 mins from Baltimore and DC. Gateway to the Maryland appalachians!
