Inside the Famous "Skinny House" of Westchester

Inside the Famous “Skinny House” of Westchester

UPDATE: Unfortunately due to a medical emergency, the author has had to cancel her appearance on November 14, 2019.

Built in 1932 by Nathan Thomas Seely, one of the first African American homebuilders in New York State, the Skinny House of Mamaroneck, which measures just 10 feet wide, is a monument to Depression-era ingenuity.

It was also the home of the Seely family for generations, the story of which is retold by Seely’s granddaughter Julie, pictured at right, in her new book, Skinny House.

On Thursday, November 14 at 7 pm, Julie Seely will be offering an inside look into the fascinating history of her family and this unique house. Dr. Seely will be available after the presentation to sign copies of her book, which will be on sale that evening at the library.
