For the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death, August 5, NBC News has released old interviews with the iconic movie star. In this interview, she proclaims her love for our fab ‘burb:

When I retire, I want to retire to Brooklyn…it’s my favorite place in the world so far that I’ve seen. I haven’t traveled much, but I don’t think I’ll find anything else to replace Brooklyn. I just like walking around. I think the view is better from Brooklyn, you know, you can look back over and see Manhattan. That’s the best view…It’s the people…I like the streets, just the people and the streets and the atmosphere, I just like it.”

So do we, Marilyn!
