Edna St. Vincent Millay, the bisexual poet and playwright who wrote lyrical poetry about female sexuality, lived for a time at 75 1/2 Bedford Street, which is the narrowest house in New York. Built in 1873 on a former carriage entrance, it is only 9 feet 6 inches (2.9 meters) wide with three stories and a shared garden in back. Although often called the Millay House, it has been home to other celebrities including anthropologist Margaret Mead and cartoonist William Steig. It is marked with a New York City Landmark plaque indicating that Millay lived there when she wrote "Ballad of the Harp-Weaver," which won the Pulizer Prize for Poetry in 1923.
