Philly has many alleys, and some of the alleys have alleys


There is a weird dynamic especially in South Philly where many alleys will have a few houses on them as well

Although not American, Montreal has them. They're a godsend when not in the mood for street clatter, their tranquility's soothing.

Canada is in North America. Montreal is in Canada. Montreal is an American city.

Chicago is the alley capital of the country, with more than 1,900 miles of them within its borders. Full size too where all power lines run. Freeing fronts of homes from poles. Homes are not in alleys garages are.

Pittsburgh has a lot of frame rowhouses in its alleys in the older neighborhoods, which is very much unlike Philly, but I'd otherwise agree.
