Michael Jackson to Get Memorial at "Bad" New York Subway Stop
Published Feb 17, 2010With Michael Jackson gone for good, the tributes to the late artist keep pouring in. The most recent venture proposed to keep alive the memory of the King of Pop is a mural at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street Station in Brooklyn, NY.
The Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street Station is the exact location where Martin Scorsese directed the seminal music video for Jackson's hit single "Bad." Originally, it was proposed to rename the stop after Jackson, but New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) said it had a strict policy of not naming stations after people.
As the Village Voice reports [via The Daily Swarm], the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership have compromised by plotting a Jackson memorial on a wall that isn't owned by the MTA.
No word yet on who will paint the mural or when it will be completed.
