Only in New York would a 999 square foot townhome measuring in at just 9 feet-6-inches wide cost you $4,990,000!

75 1/2 Bedford Street has held the adorable, quirky title of "New York's Narrowest House" for many decades. 

Built in 1873, taking over what was originally an alley for delivery carts, the Dutch style home makes up for its lack of room to spread out with its rich, abundant history. 

Over the years, everyone from Cary Grant and John Barrymore to Edna St. Vincent Millay and Margaret Mead have stayed in this slim Greenwich Village spot.

Obviously, none of them must have been claustrophobic...

Curious what the iconic thin home really looks like on the inside?
