Best Old House Neighborhoods 2010: the Northeast

For our third annual Best Places to Buy an Old House contest, what we looked for was simple: oft-overlooked neighborhoods populated by people who share an appreciation of finely crafted homes that have plenty of past and lots of future.

From quaint New England villages to bustling urban enclaves, here area a dozen places where you can find a perfect old house of your own along the northern Atlantic coast.
