On a Victorian home, some of these things are appropriate and handsome. I don't believe the OP is referring to Victorian homes.
Have you been to Philly? The bay windows on Philly row houses look both functional and attractive to me. Bay windows provide good views looking up and down the street. Plus rounding out the flatness of a typical row house. Just like the bow fronts in Boston.

I also like other 'Victorian' features Eyebrow windows, and Stained glass windows....Ornate and decorative designs were the hallmark of Victorian homes... I also like the octagonal and round tower , turrets, dormers, and wide wrap-around porches designs of Victorian (queen anne) designs.


Decorative railings and turned posts were typical of these Victorian porches that usually wrapped around at least two sides of the house. Ornate trim work around the porches included gingerbread cutouts and spindle work


I (personally) think these are some of the most beautiful homes ever made
100% agree. But don't leave out cornices, the little extensions at the front edge of a roof. They give even little flat facade row houses a bit of class.

What’s an American name? Here last name Johnson classifies as an English American name but what’s an American first name? Do German American last names don’t count or Irish American or Polish American?

Indirectly, because they are a sign of gentrification, and gentrification is seen as rich, mostly-white people returning back to and improving these areas and driving prices up and out of the reach of the minority community. It's all in liberal code-speak. I suggest you learn to decipher their BS, mindless and empty-headed as it is.

Sounds like this ship may have sailed, given the thousands of new row houses that have been built.

Politicians have this pesky habit of proposing legislation they know will fail. Nonetheless, they claim it as an accomplishment.

What exactly is an “ American” name?

Your chosen screen name is not American.
