House of the Day: Rich and Thin -- NYC's Skinniest Home

Zillow



The skinniest house in New York City has already served its prior tenants well, since it was at 75.5 Bedford St. where the great American poet Edna St. Vincent Millay wrote the poem that won her the Pulitzer Prize.

Maybe form is more than function, it's inspirational -- given the way the skinny house appears to have dictated the very narrow margins of verse St. Vincent Millay used for constructing "The Ballad of the Harp Weaver."
