Rowhouse Etiquette

May 02, 1994

Does familiarity breed contempt or community?

If you live in a rowhouse, you know that the answer is a little bit of both. The Sun would like to hear your tales of rowhouse living. Does your neighbor refuse to take his privacy fence down even though it doesn't conform to code? Does your other neighbor's stove vent pump recycled steak fumes into your house?

Or do you live in harmony with your neighbors, using the same color trim on your adjoining abodes, mowing each other's lawns and merging postage-stamp backyards into an urban oasis?

How has rowhouse living changed? Do you live in a rowhouse neighborhood that has not changed in decades?
