There was a very nice article in the Philadelphia Weekly (see <http://
www.philadelphiaweekly.com/articles/14874>) about a kind of 
CoHo-precursor community in Philadelphia, Greenbelt Knoll. 
Designed and constructed in 1956, it consisted of 19 houses built in a 
rural-feeling part of Philadelphia. They were modest and blended into 
the environment in a very unusual way for the time. They were sold 
under a covenant that called for 45% minority occupancy - very 
unusual, and progressive, for the time. Although there was no 
common house, there was apparently an uncommon degree of 
comraderie and shared life among the residents. The community is 
still going strong, and annual reunions bring back people from all 
parts of the world and all walks of life.
