Brooklynites in Florida started out several years ago simply as a project to locate Brooklyn natives currently living in Florida and interview them about their life and work in the Sunshine State.
We also thought it would be an excellent venue wherein to discover slices, or moments if you will, of Brooklyn history via our interview subjects’ unique memories about growing up in Brooklyn.

What it was like growing up in Brooklyn…When family, neighborhood, and hard work were the cornerstones of life

We are also adding and developing other sections to our Blog titled Brooklynites In Rome and Brooklyn Stickball in Florida. While conducting research during a visit to Rome in 2016, we discovered that several Brooklyn natives have some very special connections to the Eternal City. And we discovered that in Wellington Florida, near Palm Beach, there is a popular stickball league founded by a New Yorker and a Brooklyn native twenty years ago. 

Also check out our Brooklyn Footprints in Florida, a section that highlights how Brooklyn natives in the past have left a rich history of “footprints” in Florida that in some cases reach back more than a century. Including close encounters and connections with historical figures like Babe Ruth and Al Capone, or the origins of the iconic Brooklyn Dodgers, and events like the sinking of the Titanic, WWII, or the great Florida hurricane of 1928.
