Rowhouse Style Guide

I always wondered while walking, biking or driving around Brooklyn, what era the houses I am looking at are from and what the proper name for their style/type is. This website is a nice go-to for exactly that!

The Italianate, Neo-Grec and Renaissance Revival Styles are my personal favorites!

About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.

    Always liked the Beaux-Arts, Colonial and Federals myself. Going to BMCC put me in direct vicinity to some of those nearby (on top of the Ghostbusters firehouse :P) so that was gravy.
