In the title molecule, C20H19NO2, the naphthalene ring system subtends a dihedral angle of 82.50 (7)° with the benzene ring and an intramolecular N - H⋯O hydrogen bond closes an S(6) ring. In the crystal, molecules are linked by O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds, which generate C(8) chains propagating in the [010] direction. The crystal structure also features weak π- π interactions [centroid-centroid separation = 3.7246 (10) Å].
