This Old Narrow House

How much would you pay for a home 9 1/2 feet wide and 42 feet long? Well, the listing price is $2.7 million for a 990-square foot home billed as the narrowest house in New York City. We'll see if they get it. According to my rough calculation, that's over $2,700 per square foot.

The house does have some history, built in 1873, it has been the home of the anthropologist Margaret Mead and the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. The original builder obviously had a sense of humor: The address is 75 1/2 Bedford Street.
Any takers?
