CNN has a segment on the North End's legendary Skinny House, the Hull Street curiosity that supposedly springs from Civil War-era sibling rivalry: "While one brother was traveling the world and serving in the military, the other brother remained in Boston and built a large home, leaving a small slice of land (the size of a driveway) he felt was too minuscule to build on. ... [His brother] was so infuriated ... he built a four-story,10-foot-wide home that blocked both the sunlight and view from his brother’s home, just to spite him." Yeesh—we used to just hide our bro's Yoda. [CNN via Zing]
