Think you need to live in a big city to live in a row house? Nope! They're all over the place. Large towns, small towns, suburbs... you name it! We recently were introduced to the town of Newburgh, NY, where they have some lovely row house. Cher Vick from Newburgh Restoration was nice enough to … Continue reading Shared Post: Quality Row Newburgh, NY
These are two examples of row houses with wood siding. Many row homes in the area appear to have been built with flat roofs or later adapted. See the comments to learn a little more about the house on the right!
One of my favorite row house neighborhoods in New York is Brooklyn Heights. Not only do we have fond memories from when we lived nearby in Cobble Hill, but Brooklyn Heights has a wonderful range of row houses. I recently found myself in the area and decided to take a few photos of some of … Continue reading Visiting Wooden Row Houses in Brooklyn

Article originally published in summer 2008. Photos: Christine Halkiopolous. I have to disclose that I am particularly fond of the Federal Row House, because I happen to own one.
