The New York Times writes about our friend and author, Martin Kleinman (who we interviewed earlier this year) on his move back to The Bronx after being absent for so many decades.

Check out this wonderful story about coming back home.

From the NYTimes:

With the move this summer of New York’s first family from Park Slope to the Upper East Side, City Room is taking a look at the migration of New Yorkers from one neighborhood to another. Martin Kleinman shared his story, tell us yours here.

Martin Kleinman grew up in the Bronx. In 1984, he and wife, Ronni Stolzenberg, were living in Jackson Heights, Queens. They wanted to start a family, but were concerned about crime in their neighborhood.

The couple decided to move to Park Slope in Brooklyn — a decision not lauded by his grandmother.

“She literally looked at us like we were going to a death camp,” said Mr. Kleinman, 63. “She said, ‘Why are you going to Brooklyn? You’re going to go off and get killed.’”
