Kimberly Row, downtown St. John’s Newfoundland, Canada. Small, boxy, Victorian-style houses are iconic of downtown St. John’s Newfoundland. They get their name from the fact that they are multicolored like a bag of jellybeans.

“Despite its persistently drab climate, St. John’s, Newfoundland, is known as Canada’s most colorful city. Lining the streets of this foggy harbor is an enviable number of rainbow-colored Victorian row houses, affectionately called Jellybean Row. However, up until the 1970s these dwellings provided about as much eye candy as a concrete mixer. Many other cities have also endured similar periods of architectural grey, but in time their streetscapes were also sweetened with visual treats like Jellybean Row.”
