The World’s Thinnest Building


Today, I took the family to Chinatown for the Chinese New Year celebration. Vancouver’s Chinatown is home to the world’s thinnest building. It is so thin, I can stretch out my arms and reach either ends of the building.

The world’s thinnest building is home to Jack Chow Insurance. Jack (no relation to me as far as I know) uses the building as part of his promotional tool when trying to sell insurance. People going to the building to buy insurance from Jack may find the inside a bit cramp however. It’s pretty much standing room only. Here is a picture of the inside.


I’ll have photos from the Chinese New Year celebration later.
