Price: $799,000
Address: 560 State Street #1B
Size: 2BR/1.5BA, 1,085 sq. ft.
Maintenance: $1,080

You may remember 560 State Street in Boerum Hill as Jay-Z's stash house back in the early 90s, where you could find the hustler-cum-rapper "in the kitchen like a Simmons whippin' Pastry," as explained in "Empire State of Mind." Now, twenty-odd years down the line, it's kind of hard to picture Young Hov cooking up crack rock in an apartment like the one featured in this edition of The Six Digit Club.

The apartment is a 1,085-square-foot duplex, with the living room and kitchen on the lower floor and the bedrooms up top. There are hardwood floors and the bathrooms and kitchen are relatively new, with stainless steel appliances and an in-unit Bosch washer/dryer. It looks like the apartment gets good light, with a view of the Williamsburg Savings Bank. Also, the Barclays Center is right across the street. The place is a little small (the bedrooms looking especially cramped), but overall, it's a charming apartment in a great location. Roc-A-Fella y'all.
