Not sure who “wins” or “loses” in this competition, but Boston has a similarly narrow house to New York’s narrowest house, except NYC’s is narrower! Take that, Boston. Or…take that, New York?
Boston’s version, called the “Spite House,” is 10.5 feet wide at its widest point, while NYC’s is 9.5 feet wide at its widest point.
Neither of them seems to be as minuscule as the teeny-tiny apartments that NYC has.
