Go to Amsterdam and see thousands of "skinny" houses. Why this is a tripadvisor "attraction" is beyond me. Not worth a side trip. Ugly skinny house too.

This fun to drive by and take a quick picture but not much else....I do wonder how furniture fits in it and if living there would be comfortable or not......

The building is interesting for a law office. The best thing about it is the location, next to one of the best Mexican Restaurants in town. Look at the building than grab a great meal next door.

Supposed to be the narrowest house in the US--built on a bet on a ten-foot-wide lot. Worth the slight detour if you're in the neighborhood.

Before the Depression, a developer purchased land in Long Beach and sub-divided it into lots. There was a tiny 10x50' lot left over. Because people weren't able to buy homes, the developer could not pay his architect (and probably others.) So he gave the architect...More
