And now, in a real example of gentrification, the apartment where Jay Z used to store drugs during his dealing days has been put on the market – and the former stash spot is going for an entire $870,000.
The listing on Zillow reads:
The 1900-era apartment building itself underwent a rehab in 2005, when this unit first sold for $598,014. But the 1,000-square-foot unit has come back on the market with a list price of $870,000.
The unit is a duplex has two bedrooms upstairs and a large, open living area on the main floor. There are 6 over-sized windows and 10-foot ceilings. It also comes with air-conditioning — an amenity that was not there back in Jay Z’s day.
