Row Houses of the North Atlantic Cities
August 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Live on Zoom – FREE for LW Members!
Why do Amsterdam, London, and the Upper West Side have row houses while Paris, Vienna, and Houston do not? This seemingly simple question started Charlie Duff on an exploration of the world’s row house cities. He shares his discoveries in his marvelous book, The North Atlantic Cities, and now in a photo-rich presentation for LW. An engaging storyteller, Charlie introduces us to the early streets of cities in the Netherlands, the British Isles, and the U.S. (especially our “New Amsterdam” row house roots) that grew up together in the centuries after 1600 and shaped the modern world.
