The Skinny House, located at 44 Hull Street in Boston, Massachusetts, is a historic landmark famous for being one of the narrowest houses in the city. Built in 1862, the house is only 10.4 feet wide at its widest point and narrows down to about 9.25 feet. Its unique name and design stem from a local legend suggesting it was built out of spite by a man named Joseph Eueston who constructed the narrow building to block his brother-in-law's view and sunlight. Despite its small size, the Skinny House has become a popular tourist attraction, symbolizing Boston's quirky architecture and captivating visitors with its unusual dimensions and intriguing backstory.
