Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.


An apartment in Jay-Z's former stash spot, 560 State Street (so identified in 2009's "Empire State of Mind") is on the market for $870,000, and it may be the actual unit where the rapper/business, man himself resided in the late '90s. A Vulture article from right after the song came out pegged Jay-Z's former home as no. 10B, however, in 2012, Jay apparently met the guy who lives in 10B and told him that his old place was really 10C (and also borrowed his menorah). 10C, a 2BR duplex, is the one that is currently on the market and it has definitely seen some renovations since its stash spot days. That means that it's probably not worth tearing up all the floorboards in hopes of finding any errant packages of drugs that Jay-Z stashed and accidentally left behind—somebody probably already got those. Setting aside its history, the apartment itself is not really all that exciting, but as far as famous musicians' former pads go, it's definitely the best one of the day.
