    In 2005 the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission published a handy guide to NYC rowhouse styles, including Anglo-Italianate, Beaux-Arts, Federal, Colonial Revival, Gothic Revival, Greek Revival, Neo-Grec, Italianate, Queen Anne, Renaissance Revival, Romanesque Revival, and Second Empire. Today, the guide is every bit as relevant as it was in 2005. You can read the complete Rowhouse Style Guide PDF here. Excerpts follow below.
