At just 9.5 feet wide, this house at 75 1/2 Bedford Street is billed as the narrowest home in NYC. (Not sure if that is true.) Its also rumored to have a past life with Cary Grant, John Barrymore and Margaret Mead.
The interior is just 8 feet wide.
Exterior photo from 1939. I just love old nyc tax photos.
But before you knock it, skinny house living isn't as crazy as it might appear. My last house was a measley 13 feet wide. The only thing that was difficult about that was finding furniture that wouldn't overwelm the space. Now I'm living large with a 20 footer - its definitely nicer to have hallways, its not that big of a deal to live with less room. I know 20 feet is a laughable width to those outside of urban row house sprawl but it really is more than enough.

So yea, its a little bit on the narrow side but I still think this house is fabulous. It needs a little work in the interior for sure but I'd love to have a crack at it.
Did I mention this can be yours for the bargain basement price of $2.75 million? Here is the real estate listing. Now don't all run out and buy it at once!
