In the title compound, C16H15NO, the dihedral angle between the outer benzene rings is 51.88 (6)°, and each of the central six-membered rings has a boat conformation. The hy­droxy and amino groups are syn, and the hy­droxy H atom forms an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond. In the crystal, mol­ecules assemble via C—H⋯O and C—H⋯π inter­actions, consolidating a three-dimensional architecture.
