Key West was the birthplace of a basketball player (David Robinson), a football player (George Mira), and a baseball player (Boog Powell), in addition to being home to a few famous non-natives including Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and Jimmy Buffett.<br><br>I was actually born in New York, but I grew up in Key West.

Nobody famous born here, though Chuck Negron (# Dog Night singer) played basketball for Allan Hancock College. Quite a few actors came out of PCPA Theaterfest (Hancock)--Byron Jennings (mainly broadway, but saw him on Law & Order SVU once), Mercedes Ruehl, Mark Harelick, Kathy Bates. Also, that stupid Michael Jackson trial. Also, about 4 scenes from Sideways were filmed here. Other than that, I can't think of much that happened here..........
