NYC's Skinniest House For Sale (PHOTOS)

Billed the narrowest house in New York City, the 9 1/2 foot wide red brick building located at 75 1/2 Bedford St. in Greenwich Village is on the market for a not-so-skinny asking price of $2.7 million.

Famous for housing such notables as anthropologist Margaret Mead, author Ann McGovern and poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, the interior of the three-story townhouse is just 8 1/2 feet wide and 42-feet long, with a trapdoor in the kitchen leading to a finished basement.

The 990-square foot home was built in 1873.  Christopher Dubs, an architecture preservationist, bought the home in 1994 for $270,000, and spent around $200,000 in renovations.  It was purchased from Dubs in 2000 by the current owner, Steven Balsamo, for $1.6 million.

    I've seen houses like this in the movies and it's quite nice inside even if it's small outside.
