This is 44 Hull Street, the narrowest house in Boston. It measures just 10.5 feet in width and 36 feet in length, with ceilings standing only 6 feet, 4 inches high and an entrance that leads into an alleyway because the street-facing wall is too slim for a door.
Folklore has it that the house was built in the eighteenth century by gentleman who, upon returning from a trip abroad, discovered that his brother had occupied almost all of the property left to them both by their parents by constructing a large house. In retaliation, he built his house on the narrow amount of land that was left unused, thus blocking his sibling's view and just generally causing a nuisance.
