Why do Washington and London have row houses while Paris and Minneapolis 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
The North Atlantic Cities,
published in 2019 by the Bluecoat Press. A loving but critical portrait, it starts in Amsterdam in 1600 and ends in the present.  It covers Dutch, British, Irish, and American cities that house more than 100 million people.
Charles B. Duff
is a planner, teacher, developer, and historian.  Since 1987, Mr. Duff has been President of Jubilee Baltimore, a non-profit group that has built or rebuilt more than 300 buildings in historic Baltimore neighborhoods and is leading the development of the Station North Arts District. He has been President of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and Chairman of the Board of the Patterson Park Community Development Corporation.  A graduate of Amherst College and Harvard University, he lectures widely and has taught at Johns Hopkins and Morgan State. He co-wrote
Then and Now: Baltimore Architecture
in 2005 and contributed to
The Architecture of Baltimore.
His book
The North Atlantic Cities
has just been published.
