It really says something about the New York City real estate market that I read all that and was like “Hey that’s pretty good for almost $3 million.” In Manhattan that much money would get you, like, a studio with a toilet kitchen. It’s also relatively cheap by Metallica standards: remember, Kirk Hammett was asking for $16 million for his San Francisco home.
Here’s a video of the house, so even if you can’t afford it, you can see where Jason Newsted lives (which has always been on your bucket list, right?):
