Took it to my stash spot
560 State Street
560 State Street is in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, a relatively tranquil neighborhood near the site where Jay Z built a new arena for the Brookyln Nets
New York magazine recently interviewed longtime residents of this block to confirm that the address was in fact Jay Z’s stash spot (drug storage) when he was a dealer
He visited the place again for the Made In America Festival Documentary and took this photo from the roof.
As of January 2014, this apartment is on the market — listed at $870,000.
