Yes-mostly in Northeast Philly

On my block the houses have backyards but small alley walkways.

Roxborough has many too

Only in the oldest parts of town. Places like Fell's/Locust Point that were built between 1800 and 1899.

Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you meant alleys that people lived on.

Most places have alleyways in Baltimore, though some places in the detached housing districts do not.

Detached housing w/alleyway

In my city streets in neighborhoods that were built pre-1960's have alleys. Streets in neighborhoods post 1950's only have alleys if they have multi-family housing on them.

In the older parts of town, yes. Most garages are on the alley. Trash, recycling and yard debris are picked up on the street side, though, not the alley, because the alleys are narrow and a lot of them aren't paved.

A lot of places in the older sections of Baltimore don't have alleys at all, unless of course, we're talking about residential alleys. They are residential alleys in many neighborhoods that you wouldn't expect, like Hampden, Waverly, Park Heights, Hoes Height's (practically Hampden).

Right, see my first post. People in Fell's Point live on alleys, but don't have them at the back of their houses. For the majority of the city, however, the reverse is true.

My childhood home in a city in L.A. county had a back alley. I guess I took them for granted now that I live in a cul-de-suck with no alleys and only one way out. I remember the utility poles were in the alley because as a kid I would climb them to get on top of the roof of the garage. Plus all the garbage cans were collected in the alleys. I would love to walk the alleys on my way to and from school.

We have them here in older sections of Phoenix proper, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert and Glendale, mainly in areas that were built before 1950
