Welcome to NeverLeaveBrooklyn!

Hi there, I’m Leonard Simon, the proud owner and creator of NeverLeaveBrooklyn. My grandfather “Eddie”, who is no longer with us, was from Brooklyn and always enjoyed the stories he told me about his time there as a child. I grew up in Fort Lee, New Jersey and would visit Brooklyn with him from time to time. I’ve always been fascinated by the rich history, vibrant neighborhoods, and diverse culture of this borough. This website is my tribute to Brooklyn, offering insights into its history, attractions, lifestyle, events, and much more. My aim is to share the magic of Brooklyn with everyone, from locals to tourists, ensuring that they truly understand why one should never leave Brooklyn. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find this website informative and engaging!
