Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is reported to have considered a move to Brooklyn in the mid-90s. Apparently, he wanted to live near the Prospect Park Zoo, so that his companion Bubbles would have friends.

Also, Michael Jackson always had an affinity for rats (see: "Ben") and Brooklyn has a lot of rats.

Jackson was known to have said, "I like rats. Brooklyn is nice too."
