The skinniest house in New York City is for sale for the fat price of $2.75 million or $2,777.00 a square foot.
It’s a townhouse 9-1/2-feet-wide (the interior is only 8-1/2 feet wide) and 42 feet long, billed as the narrowest house in New York City. The red brick building was built in 1873, sandwiched in a narrow space that used to be an alleyway between homes. It has been home to a who’s-who list of luminaries, including anthropologist Margaret Mead, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay and actors Cary Grant and John Barrymore.
Author Ann McGovern lived there briefly and the red-brick house even inspired her to co-write the novel “Mr. Skinner’s Skinny House.” Only in New York!
