The apartment at 560 State Street in Brooklyn's Boerum Hill that was immortalized in Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' 2009 hit "Empire State of Mind" has been listed for sale for $1.4 million according to The New York Post.

Jay-Z reportedly lived in unit 10C in the complex that was home to black artists, filmmakers, and creatives in the late '90's. The 1000 sq ft unit is a duplex with two bedrooms upstairs, and an open living area on the main floor.

In 2014, the unit listed for $870K and closed for $930K.

I used to cop in Harlem, hola, my Dominicanos/ Right there up on Broadway, brought me back to that McDonald's/ Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street/ Catch me in the kitchen, like a Simmons whipping pastries."
