Fat chance? The city’s narrowest building is finally in contract after years of price chops and popping on and off the market, Curbed reported. The property, at 75 1/2 Bedford Street in the West Village, was last asking $3.5 million.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home was built around 1850 and comes with a garden, four wood-burning fireplaces and the priceless cachet of being able to say you live where Cary Grant, John Barrymore and Margaret Mead once dwelled.

The 9.5-foot wide home first hit the market just over two years ago for $4.3 million, but was taken off the market at the end of 2011, according to StreetEasy. In January 2012 it was re-listed asking $3.95 million, then underwent two additional price cuts before being taken off again. In February it re-emerged asking $3.5 million.
