Famous figures from Dorchester
Jordan & Jonathan Knight
The boy band New Kids on the Block, credited with spawning a pop music trend in the late '80s and early '90s, originally formed in Dorchester.
Fans still flock to the former home of the Knight brothers.
Jonathan was the first to leave the group in 1994 and went into the real estate business. Jordan pursued a solo singing career. Both reunited with NKOTB in 2008 for a national tour.
