DoBro's Jacko Tribute

New, 7 comments

The MTA shot down a city councilwoman's attempt to get the Hoyt-Schermerhorn subway stop, where the "Bad" video was filmed in 1987, renamed for Michael Jackson. But the Post reports that an entrance to the station, on the side of an office building at 45 Hoyt Street, will get repainted in his honor. The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership has yet to pick an artist or style for the tribute, but says it "could be the size of a huge mural and possibly rely on lights and projection at nighttime." And the fledgling DoBro tourism industry really kicks off. [NYP; previously]
