“Dear PoPville,

A question that has been vexing my son and I for some time.

On Q street between 14th and 15th on the north side of the road, there are a series of two, adjoining rowhouses with narrow alleys on either side of them. But the rowhouses are connected on both sides by narrow passages between the houses that connect on the second story. Anyone know the story of these homes or why these are connected on the 2nd floor like this?”

Ed. Note: I know we’ve talked about these in the past – but I can’t find it in the archives. Anyone remember? textdoc can you find the old posts?
