Mamaroneck’s Skinniest House on Thin Ice

 

skinniest housePerhaps you’ve been reading about the efforts to save Mamaroneck’s “Skinniest House,” 12 1/2 feet wide, 100 feet deep and built from salvaged materials in 1932.

Despite being recommended by the Governor for historic designation, the little treasure’s  future hangs in the balance.

theLoop even profiled it in a video about five area mysteries, which include a storied island, a park made of subway fill (Harbor island), and why Memorial Park has two highway tunnels.

I always thought those tunnels in Myrtle Park were odd but never dreamt they were highway tunnels via Robert Moses! I used to ride my bike down there and spend hours hitting tennis balls up against the sides and yes I thought that it was built for tennis practice since it was near the tennis courts. I am still not sure how a car could fit inside those tunnels unless it was each one lane perhaps??
