For $869,000, You Can Live In Jay-Z’s Old Boerum Hill Building


If you have around 900k to blow and really, really love “Empire State of Mind,” hot real estate tip: SOHH reports that a unit is opening up in the Boerum Hill building Jay once lived in and immortalized in his lyric, “Took it to my stash spot, 560 State St.” And for $869,000, it can be yours.

Complex writes, “Unit 2C in the Boerum Hill building is currently on the market for $869,000, featuring two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms within 1,060-square-feet,” though it should be noted that the going lore has Jay-Z former home as unit 10B. If that were the unit opening up, we assume there’d be an extra few hundred thousand tacked onto the asking price here. It’s enough to put Biggie’s $750,000 former apartment to shame.
