Great topic. London and Boston sure have good looking rows. But NYC sure has plenty of nice ones too. These photos comes from my walking tours that I had posted in the past. So I am very limited to some neighborhoods unfortunately. But here are the neighborhoods in NYC that I have been to so far. NYC tends to have a lot more combinations of townhouses and they can be next to many apartment mid rises and high rises. On one street there will be many different architectural type of buildings. In Brooklyn, Townhomes/Brownstones rows can take a full street. In Manhattan most of it is a mix environment.

Sylvia Plath committed Suicide in this house in London at nearby 23 Fitzroy Road on the 11th February 1963. 23 Fitzroy Road was once lived in by W.B Yates hence the blue plaque.

Brook Street, London - George Fredrick Handel and Jimi Hendrix have blue plaques next to each other, as they both lived on the street in neighbouring flats but centuries apart.

There are some very impressive pictures in this thread. London is amazing!

We call them terraces houses in Melbounre. I found these pictures of Melbourne "terrace house" at Wikipedia here.

I f*cking love Coronation St.

Not quite as much as I love Eastenders though.

There aren't an abundance of row homes (except for ugly ones built in the 60-80s) in Scandinavia, but here are some nice Copenhagen row homes;

^ I agree about the dullness. But I am sure they are expensive.

Also thanks for those nice NYC ones krull. Do you have any from the Upper East Side or Upper West Side? Thanks.

Waiting for more cities. France? Spain? South America? More Asians too. :)

Some of these are clearly not rowhomes. Rowhomes were never intended to have garages at street level and they are not meant to be gated off.
