About This File

As requested by many, here comes my old "Lexington Homes" in a new updated pack with four colour variation to create more variety in the row-homes areas of your cities.

Those houses are inagurally modelled after two buildings opposite the MoMa on 53rd Street in New York, the style is typical for the richer one-family houses that are built on the narrow lots on Manhattans Upper East and Upper West.

The buildings are R$$ and grow on 1 x 1 or 1 x 2 lots. In the real world, those buildings are of course R$$$, but they make up lots of trouble for people in the game by "cancer-spreading" around the town followed by mass-abandonment when they build as $$$.

The names on the different houses are Lexington, Madison, Roosevelt and Garcia Homes. The Lexongton and Madison are named after the avenues in the neighbourhood where you can see a lot of those houses. Roosevelt is named after Roosevelt Island (and of course president Roosevelt who named the Island). The Garcia might be less obvious in its New York connection, it is named after New Yorks Joel Garcia, one of the best BAT architects back in the SC3000 days. So this building is my honour to a nice fellow in the SimCity community and also a honour to one of the survivors of the 9/11 attack.

Install tips:
If you already have some old Lexington Homes version (either R$$ or R$$$) installed, you can keep it along with the new set. If you delete the old one, all your old Lexingtons will be gone. If you install the new set straight off while keeping the old lots, of course the Lexingtons will grow more often than the others because they are doubled in the plugins folder. To avoid this, simply delete the Lexingtons from the new set.
