A New York City lawmaker wants to see Michael Jackson honored at a subway station where the star made the music video for “Bad.”
Councilwoman Letitia James wants a plaque placed at Brooklyn’s Hoyt-Schermerhorn — or even to have “Jackson” added to the station’s name.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Kevin Ortiz said Monday it’s unlikely. James — undeterred — plans a petition drive.
Jackson, who died June 25, shot the Martin Scorsese-directed music video in 1987.
Ortiz says the MTA prohibits station plaques. The agency is developing naming-rights guidelines.
Developer Bruce Ratner could pay $4 million over 20 years to add the name of his planned Barclays Center NBA arena to a Brooklyn transit hub.
