Measuring only 9½ feet wide and 42 feet long and billed as the narrowest home in New York City, there's nothing trim about its asking price of $2.7 million.

Located in Greenwich Village at 75½ Bedford St., the red brick structure was built in 1873, sandwiched between 75 and 77 Bedford.

The house is well-known for other reasons, too. Corcoran real estate broker Alex Nicholas says anthropologist Margaret Mead and poet Edna St. Vincent Millay once lived there.

The three-story house provides lots of light with large windows in the front and back, and a skylight.

The current owner bought it in 2000 for $1.6 million.

Nicholas says it's a place for someone who wants a little history.
