Brooklynites In Florida is a Blog Site featuring a series of Interviews with Brooklyn natives currently living outside Brooklyn, highlighting their memories of what it was like growing up in Brooklyn.
Palmer Hasty is a published poet and retired newspaper journalist living in Clearwater, Florida. As a former Brooklynite, the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper asked Mr. Hasty to locate and interview Brooklyn natives living in Florida, therefore, Brooklynites In Florida. The project eventually expanded to include Brooklyn natives living anywhere (Brooklynites Around the World and Brooklynites In Rome). All the interviews on this Blog Site were originally published in the Brooklyn Eagle.
