2. NYC’s Narrowest House is in Greenwich Village

Edna St. Millay House

Of Manhattan’s five narrowest houses, the narrowest of them all is at 75 ½ Bedford Street. The 9½ foot-width building is the former home of writer Edna St. Vincent Millay, occupying a whole 999 square feet. It was most recently sold in 2013 for $3.25 million, with the new owner making many upgrades (seen in this video). Real estate website Zillow now estimates the building’s value at $7.35 million.
