Elvis Presley

Presley's love for Brooklyn has only been discovered recently with the re-publication of a little-seen interview he did with a now defunct newspaper.

Presley was asked if there was anywhere other than Memphis that he might consider living in.

"Well, it's funny you should ask that," he is reported to have said. "I was just talking to Norman Mailer [NB Presley and Mailer were very tight friends in Presley's later years] and he's been urging me to get a place near him in Brooklyn Heights. On one of the fruit streets."

Unfortunately, Presley died just three days later, on the toilet.
