Thanks to a 2019 street co-naming, it’s well known that Chris Wallace, better known as Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls, grew up in an apartment at 226 St. James Place in Clinton Hill. The late rapper’s childhood home was a three-bedroom unit on the third floor, and now, the unit just below it has hit the market for $1.2 million. Like Biggie’s apartment, it’s been fully renovated and features a lovely bay window, pretty moldings, and a renovated kitchen. It also has three bedrooms and totals 1,121 square feet.
