Why do London and New York City have row houses
while Paris and Houston do not?
 
This was the question that led Charles Duff to explore the world’s row house cities, a remarkable group of cities in four nations, and find that they form an urban family, bound together by architecture, commerce, and politics for more than 400 years.
 
The result is his illustrated book The North Atlantic Cities.
 
During Mr. Duff’s lively and photo-rich presentation, we’ll watch as the North Atlantic cities grow, become beautiful, and invent many of the things we take for granted today: like parks, mass transit, downtowns, even suburbia.
