NEW YORK, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Rapper Jay-Z says he and his expectant wife Beyonce may join generations of young Manhattan families and set up housekeeping across the bridge in Brooklyn.

Jay-Z hinted at the celebrity heresy to E! Online, saying the outer borough is actually a bit on the pricey side.

"The prices over there are really high," Jay-Z said. "It's not like before."

While price may be an object, dear old Brooklyn holds another key draw for Jay-Z, the New York Daily News said Saturday. He's a part-owner of the NBA New Jersey Nets, who have plans to relocate to a new arena in Brooklyn next year.
