The Philadelphia Row House

    Philadelphia is a city of row houses – from the colonial era trinity to the 19th century workingman’s house and the 20th century airlite. We talk about the history of this housing style that dominates Philadelphia’s neighborhoods and the architectural renaissance the “Philadelphia rows” are experiencing. our guests are architect RACHEL SCHADE and JEFFERY COHEN, architectural historian from Bryn Mawr College.
