Charlie Duff, president, Jubilee Baltimore and executive director, Midtown Development
Why do Baltimore and London have row houses while Paris and Minneapolis do not? This question led Charlie Duff to explore a remarkable group of cities in four nations and to discover that they form an urban family, bound together by architecture, commerce, and politics, for more than 400 years. The story begins in Amsterdam in 1600 and covers Dutch, British, Irish and American cities that house more than 100 million people. It all starts with the row house as not only the key to understanding why many of the world’s great cities look and function as they do, but as perhaps the best model to avoid sprawl, urban decay, and the worse catastrophes of global climate change.
