75 1/2 Bedford St. is New York City's skinniest house and just sold for $2.75 million. The 990 square-foot home is three stories tall and only slightly over eight feet wide inside. It has a finished basement and floor-to-ceiling French doors looking out over a shared backyard.

The house was last on the market in 2000 when Steven Balsamo bought it for $1.6 million. Over the years the house has been home to a lot of well-known people including anthropologist Margaret Mead and poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Small houses are greener houses, so I bet that place is really cheap to heat and cool.
