'Skinny House' could soon be a national historic landmark

The Seely House, also known as the Skinny House, in Mamaroneck could soon be recognized by the state as a historic landmark.



Last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo recommended the property for the National Register of Historic Places.



The recognition could help garner grants for the home, which has been vacant for two years and torn up inside by termites.



Built in 1932, the three-story home on Grand Street is 10-feet wide and 37-feet long.



It will take several months before the so-called Skinny House is approved to be on the National Register.
