So now that I know that Marilyn Monroe loved Brooklyn and wanted to retire here and spend time walking around and admiring the views of Manhattan and whatever else it was that people did in Brooklyn in the 1950s (stickball, I guess) I couldn't help but wonder what other icons wanted to live in Brooklyn.
Who else was just dying to answer the siren call of Brooklyn's streets?
Who else couldn't wait to spend their golden years "walking around"???
If I had to speculate—and I do have to speculate, because none of them ever said anything like this—I'd start with these people.
