Long Mac, Tre Bicchieri, Carlton North


In the Odd Spot today:

Proving the adage "less is more", New York City's narrowest house, a three-metre-wide, 14-metre-deep Greenwich Village red-brick, is up for sale for $US2.7 million ($A3.2 million). Real estate agent Alex Nicholas admits, "You have to be very clever in how you decorate."

I'm not sure I agree with the hyphenation, but something tells me the new owner would be wise to utilise the property as a café called The Narrowest House in the Village, complete with polished concrete floors, exposed beams, recycled furniture, room out the front for parking of fixed-gear bikes or Vespa scooters, free wi-fi, communal dog bowls, the city's narrowest farmers' market every Sunday, and plenty of single-sided bench space for people to sit alone and get out their Moleskine notebook or edit their independent documentary on their Macbook Pro.
