Clad in stone, brick, wood, vinyl, shingles, or stucco, row houses represent a swath of architectural styles and every kind of variation on a theme. Facades might be sculpturally rich, have tacked on ornament, or remain unadorned. This is a key characteristic of New York’s rows: They form an ensemble but are almost never uniform. Siblings, but not twins.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will sadly be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise around €20,000 ($25,000). We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible.
