50 Years

I am Brooklyn born (though Long Island raised) and my parents were big Dodgers fans. I am not sure my father ever totally recovered from the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn, though as far as he was concerned, the Mets (not those imposters in LA) were the real Dodgers.

With all the nostalgia regarding the Brooklyn Dodgers, it is interesting that (i) the Mets have played more games in Shea than the Dodgers played at Ebbets and (ii) there does not seem to be any nostalgia for the NY Giants, who left the same time as the Dodgers.
