Hess Triangle

The smallest real estate in New York

The Hess triangle is the name of the smallest land plot, the history of which is already estimated at 106 years. In 1910, the idea of ​​the subway and the Hess triangle - its legacy - was actively developing in New York.

The authorities planned to widen the streets to make construction work more convenient, with the result that more than three hundred buildings were to be demolished. Among them was the five-story residential building Voorhis Apartment, which belonged to David Hess. The houses were safely demolished, but the surveyors' calculations were inaccurate.

As a result, Hess left in his property a tiny piece of land, in the shape of an isosceles triangle, with a base of 65 cm and sides of 70 cm. Attempts by the authorities to buy out the micro-plot from Hess ended in nothing. In 1922, an American visually anchored his land with ceramic tiles. [First Image / Source]

Later, the site was sold to a cigar shop next door for $ 1,000.
