New Yorkers are no strangers to tight spaces, but this building in the West Village—which holds the title for the narrowest apartment in all of NYC—might just be a little too tight for its price tag.
Coming in at just below $5 million dollars, this apartment measures in at 8 feet 7 inches wide. Located at 75 1/2 Bedford Street, this apartment was sandwiched between building 75 & 77 more than a century ago to make way for more housing in the city during the time.
According to Street Easy, this Dutch gable home was first erected in 1901. According to NYC realtor, Eric Conover, this historical building is so narrow because it once was the carriage entryway for the property located behind it.
Towering up three stories, the apartment offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has been known to host famous residents such as William Steig, the illustrator of Shrek and actor Cary Grant.
The apartment is currently listed at $4,490,000 and offers a private terrace overlooking a backyard garden, a claw foot tub, and two fireplaces.
