One Foot-Wide Strip of Land in NY Sells for $120K

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_18a03b9e67.jpgiStockphoto/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- Suffolk County, New York, put a small parcel of land up for grabs recently, and officials figured it was worth a couple of bucks -- 10, to be exact. Newsday reports the 1,885-foot-long strip of land touched the property lines of a handful of residents of the tiny East Hampton town of Napeague, but only two -- Marc Helie and Kyle N. Cruz -- wanted the 12-inch wide parcel that ran from Montauk Highway to the Atlantic Ocean.

Soon, a bidding war was afoot, and a starting bid of $1,500 quickly rose, before Helie emerged victorious over his neighbor with a $120,000 bid. The odd -- and oddly-expensive -- patch of land basically boxes Cruz in on two sides, meaning he'd have to step over Helie's property just to reach the beach a few hundred feet away from his own home. The land went up for auction in May, but the records were just released, Newsday notes.
