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 station – or 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 at the downtown Brooklyn station in 1987.

Ortiz says the MTA prohibits station plaques. The agency is developing naming-rights guidelines.
