In the title compound, C18H14N2O2·H2O, the dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the naphthalene system is 5.18 (10)°. Intramolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds influence the molecular conformation. In the crystal, intermolecular N-HO and O-HO hydrogen bonds are observed as well as - interactions between the phenyl ring and the substituted ring of the naphthalene [centroid-centroid distance = 3.676 (11) Å].
