Tom Cruise went to elementary school here (with my mom, nonetheless).

And the following people all live or lived here in the past few years (but don't come from here)...Queen Latifah, Derek Jeter, and Run from Run DMC. Plus some players for the NY Giants. Oh, and some of the 9/11 hijackers were living here.

What about Fountain's of Wayne? Or were they just named after the place without actually being from there?
Anyway, one of the members from Boys 2 Men used to live down the street from my middle school

He spent his last day primarily with a hooker named Heidi. He was really into hookers. Heidi was hired for Farley by a friend for $2,000. She joined Farley at a party in Lincoln Park (in Chicago) at 11am. There were drugs going around. Later that day, Heidi took Farley back to her apartment – where they continued to smoke crack and snort heroin. Chris claimed he’d been up for 4 days, without sleep. They tried to have sex, but Chris couldn’t. Cut to 11pm – Chris and Heidi were back at his apartment in the Hancock building. She was getting pissed off because she wanted to get paid, and Chris claimed that the friend was supposed to pay her. They supposedly tried sex again, unsuccessfully, and finally at 3am she decided to take off. Farley was clearly inebriated, and as she was leaving his apartment, he collapsed about 10 feet from the door. Heidi claimed she could hear that he was having difficulty breathing. He said to her, "Don't leave me." Figuring he had finally passed out, she snapped a photograph of him lying there and then left.
