Remember that deaths were recorded where they occurred, not necessarily
where the person lived,so just because a person lived in Brooklyn does not mean
they died there. A death in an accident or while on a visit would be recorded
in that place.

a good point.

But Frederick Jacobs was 76 yo at the time (July 30, 1902), and ill and
was promptly buried in Brooklyn where his family had long lived. Still a small
puzzle... the substantial obit in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle (of Aug 1st) made
no mention of such recent travel, but as you say, it may have occurred (even
briefly). He isn't listed in the other buroughs either...
