Many towns and cities boast the narrowest house/gable in the country or even the world. Famous examples are: Singel 7 – Amsterdam; Voorstraat 265 – Dordrecht (but without a door); 39 Rue du Château d’Eau – Paris; Lange Voorhout 32A – The Hague; 75 Bedford Street – New York (poet Edna St. Vincent Millay lived here); Huikstraat 47 - Antwerp; Keret House, between 22 Chłodna Street and 74 Żelazna Street in Warsaw (called after author Etgar Keret, the first tenant); a house on Plaza Lope de Vega in Valencia; and Kirchstraße 29 in Bregenz (not wider than the door, 57 cm).
Sint-Antoniusstraat 8 has, with 230 cm, definitely the smallest gable in Bergen op Zoom. Hardly anyone will know about this. So far...
