Philadelphia City Planning Commission, A City of Neighborhoods ( Philadelphia: City Planning Commission, 1976), pp. 12-13. The street grid and rowhouse became so ingrained in Philadelphia's physical development pattern that attempts to modify them have seldom been successful. Even after World War II, when the Far Northeast section of the city was being developed, the city planning commission had to battle developers who wanted to continue the grid pattern into that region, obliterating hills, streams, and other features of the landscape. Ultimately, the grid was broken for only a small section of the city.
