NEW YORK — The birthplace of Hip-Hop is facing a foreclosure auction.
1520 Sedgwick Avenue, credited as the birthplace of hip hop, is the site of one of Hip-Hop’s founding fathers, Kool DJ Herc who helped create hip the culture as we know it.
Turns out it hasn’t been as easy for the new owners to fix that situation as they expected, because they’ve run into a bit of trouble paying the mortgage. According to PropertyShark, the building is facing a foreclosure auction on November 7. The lien amount: $7,379,208. Will anyone ever rescue this piece of history?
