75 1/2 Bedford Street, the narrowest house in New York City, exploded onto the market a month ago with a price tag of $2.75 million for 990 square feet. The city waited with baited breath and offers of $10,000 in free IKEA furniture, but the house did not sell. And now! The mid-nineteenth-century house has gotten a 9 percent price cut (and a few new listing photos), for a new ask of $2,499,000. Once occupied by Edna St. Vincent Millay and, rumor has it, Cary Grant and John Barrymore, it last sold for $1.6 million in 2000.
