A Study in Bay Windows: Northern Liberties (and some Fishtown) Edition Tuesday, January 3, 2012
A few months back, we took a look at examples of bay windows in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood, one of the most actively developing areas in the city over the past decade or so. Stucco bay windows, often utilized and commonly criticized, are definitely prominent in this neighborhood, though we found numerous examples of other styles, too.
Graduate Hospital has a fairly homogenous look, with relatively few new buildings stretching much beyond the boundaries of the classic Philly row home look. In Northern Liberties and Fishtown, on the other hand, builders have given us considerably more progressive, interesting, compelling, and/or tragic architectural efforts. We'll leave it up to you to decide which homes are examples of what.
