Some serious chimneys

    The ubiquitous row houses of the outer boroughs.

  2. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Couple pics back had the crowns, these have chimneys. These chimneys sure do stand out though. Probably because they are on row houses. I don’t think I’d like living in a row house. You REALLY gotta get along with your neighbors!

    I’m trying to picture the fireplace and can’t….the porch on the lower floor underneath it gets in the way.

  4. Karen Too says:

    I once lived right next door to, and across the street from, a series of row houses similar to the ones here, and I have been inside a number of them when looking for a place to live in Brooklyn.

    There are quite a lot of designs from which to choose.

    For example, I lived in a completely different kind in Manhattan, which I quite enjoyed, but I did not care at all for the ones typical of the design shown here.

    As Dorinda pointed out, you’d better like your neighbors. Even so, there is such a thing as too much togetherness. ;-)

    You can see some history, pictures, etc. of them here.

    Floor plans of many on here, along with other info.

    I didn’t go through all of them, but perhaps there is one that illustrates the chimney layout for tna.
