Regardless if you decide to live in East Village or West Village, the area is well stocked with gorgeous Federal-style row houses. Tree-lined streets and cobblestone roads are another major attraction, as well as the streetcar rail-lined streets. Streets are narrow here and so houses vary in size and style, ranging from turreted Victorians to low, boxy Colonials. Along with row houses, there are also a few condo developments scattered around town as well as modern townhouses, converted schoolhouses and other up-and-coming projects.
