The building described as the city’s skinniest home is back on the market. The 9-½-foot-wide, three-story home is for rent, after it sold to much publicity in late January.

The owner, who paid $2.1 million for it, is using the property as an investment, according to brokers at CitiHabitats.

Here’s a look at unique city abodes:
The skinny
75½ Bedford St., West Village, $10,000 a month rent
Maybe it’s not the best space for a claustrophobic person, but a creative New Yorker would do well in a 9½-foot-wide home. What it lacks in width it makes up for in height with three stories. Plus it lists some notable celebs as former residents, including Cary Grant and John Barrymore. (Itzaskun "Itzy" Garay, 212-400-2500)

124 DeKalb Ave., Fort Greene, $4.2 million
This converted firehouse was once home to Spike Lee. It was built in the 19th century, has three floors and a two-car garage. In 2008, the property was on sale for $5.8 million, so it’s come down quite a bit. (Scott Kriger, 212-774-3800 )

A front yard? A porch? A backyard for gardening? Check — and it’s all in Brooklyn. This single-story, five-bedroom house is described as a “classic American Foursquare complete with English ivy on an old brick retaining wall.” (Dan Shapiro, 917-912-8669)

‘The Refrigerator’
198 Green St., Greenpoint, $1.4 million
The facade of this three-level townhouse is stainless steel. The people at CitiHabitats said it caused quite a stir in the neighborhood when the silvery makeover was complete. Inside is a modern home with a basement, and it has a patio and garden. (Cosmin Bita, 212-400-1300)
