Watercooler Talk
NEW YORK (AP) — A town house dubbed New York City’s skinniest house has sold for $2.1 million.

The red, 9 1/2 foot wide, 42 foot long brick building in Greenwich Village was built in 1873 on land used as an alley between homes.

The town house was listed for sale last August at $2.7 million. The two bedroom, two bath home last sold in 2000 for $1.6 million.

A plaque on the narrow Bedford Street home notes poet Edna St. Vincent Millay once lived there; so did anthropologist Margaret Mead.

The newly-sold building was listed on real estate Web sites Wednesday as a rental available for $10,000 a month. An e-mail seeking comment from the listed rental agent Wednesday was not immediately returned.

Actress Margaret O’Brien is 73. Singer Don Van Vliet (aka “Captain Beefheart”) is 69. Singer Lisa Lisa (Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam) is 43. Actor Chad Lowe is 42. Alt-country singer Will Oldham (aka “Bonnie Prince Billy”) is 40. Actress Regina King is 39. Actor Eddie Cahill is 32. Rapper/reggaeton artist Pitbull is 29.
