Our Shop History
The original owner and our father, Larry Nobel, learned the trade at his father's bike shop in Brooklyn in the late '30s. Times were tough and, as a teen, he would open the store after school and work until dark while his father worked a second job.
Larry always felt unfulfilled in his work as an adult until the day in 1954, when with a loan from his father-in-law, he opened the doors of Brookdale Cycle and Hobby Shop.
Our Shop Legacy
For more than 60 years, our shop has continued to thrive and grow as a result of the friendly disposition and solid work ethic passed down from our father. Now in our third generation of family ownership, we are still known for the individualized, personalized service that distinguishes us from the competition.
