I used to cop in Harlem,
all of my Dominicanos
right there up on Broadway,
brought me back to that McDonalds

– Jay-Z, “Empire State of Mind”

I live in Harlem and occassionally I’ll pop into the McDonald’s at 145th and Broadway either for an Egg McMuffin or large coffee in the morning. I wondered if Jay was talking about that particular Mickey D’s in “Empire State of Mind”. Apparently I was right:

Jay @ 145th & Broadway, Harlem (10.1.09)On my way to the subway this morning he was perched on a railing just outside the entrance to the Downtown 1 train, shooting that verse for the “Empire State of Mind” video.

You never know who’ll you run into in NY.
