Brooklyn has a lot of odd attractions, but this may take the cake in terms of sheer potential cult attraction: the Hoyt-Schermerhorn stop in downtown Brooklyn will soon officially become a Michael Jackson-themed subway stop. The NY Post reports this might include a full-size mural, lights and projection at night, whiiiiich sounds kind of insane. Logic tells us this all came together because the stop was the set of Jackson’s landmark, Scorsese-directed music video for “Bad” some 23 years ago. But we’re pretty sure people just got tired of telling their friends to meet them at Hoyt-Schermerhorn.
