Famously a resident of the Upper West Side's iconic Dakota, John Lennon was actively contemplating a move to Brooklyn before his untimely death.
He was remembered to have said, "The Upper West Side is finished. They're talking about opening a Gap on 96th Street. I mean, what the fuck? I want to take Yoko and Sean and head out to where there will never be any big chain stores. We're moving to Brooklyn."
After his death, Yoko decided to stay with Sean in the Dakota because she's no fool. That building is INSANE.
