It might not be 2009 anymore, which means that you aren’t hearing “Empire State of Mind” blasting out of every car stuck in traffic along Flatbush Avenue. But that doesn’t mean you don’t know all the words, which is why even though you’ve never lived there, the address 560 State Street his burned into your brain (“Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street/Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons whipping pastry”). And now if you’ve got a spare $870,000 (or really good credit for a mortgage) lying around, you can live in the very spot where Jay-Z whipped like Simmons.
Curbed first noticed that the spot was on the market, and they also point out that due to renovations, there’s probably no coke or cash hidden in the walls of 560 State Street, 10C. Of course, once the place belongs to you, there’s nothing stopping you from looking. As for the apartment itself, it’s a 2-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom duplex, but we suppose that if you’re a regular reader of Brokelyn, you’re not exactly in the market to buy a brand new apartment, whether the place formerly belonged to a rapper or not.
Of course, if you do have a million bucks burning a hole in your pocket since you missed out on Biggie’s house (which was cheaper), why not go for it. We recommend then decorating your new home with some of Mike D’s wallpaper.
