Skinniest house in New York City will cost you fat price of $2.75 million

The skinniest house in New York City is on the market for a fat price.

The 9-1/2-feet-wide townhouse at 75-1/2 Bedford St. in the West Village was put up for sale this week for an asking price of $2.75 million, or $2,777 a square foot.

"It's a legendary house because it's the narrowest house in New York and it's got a lot of lore," said Alex Nicholas, the Corcoran real estate broker who is handling the listing.

Nicholas said he'll begin showing the three-story, 990-square-foot house next week.

He is confident he'll get the big-bucks asking price even in the soft real estate market.

"It's a unique space - one of a kind," Nicholas said.

Built in 1873, the diminutive house is squeezed between 75 and 77 Bedford St. and has been home to a who's-who list of luminaries, including anthropologist Margaret Mead and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.
