The title compound, C17H11N, crystallizes with two molecules in the asymmetric unit which are linked by a weak C-H center dot center dot center dot N hydrogen bond. The dihedral angles between the benzene ring and the naphthalene ring system in the two molecules are 60.28 (3) and 60.79 (3)degrees. In the crystal, molecules are linked into a three-dimensional network by weak C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interactions.
