Make yourself skinny: Breathe in and don’t breathe out until you leave the house.

For $2.75 million, you can have a piece of New York history, although, who knows if your furniture will fit. This 9 1/2 feet wide Dutch-style townhome, built in 1873, is located in Manhattan’s West Village at 75 Bedford St, New York, NY 10014.

According to the New York Post, this home is the skinniest house in New York City. To put the width of this home into perspective, it is just about 2.5 feet narrower than the length of a standard Mini Cooper (12 feet, 1.6 inches).

According to the Corcoran listing for the skinny house:

“The home has had its share of notable residents. Actors Cary Grant and John Barrymore, the anthropologist Margaret Mead, the cartoonist, William Steig and the Pulitzer prize winning poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay.”
