Sept. 16, birthdays for Amy Poehler, Nick Jonas, Mickey Rourke
Good afternoon, Brooklyn. Today is the 259th day of the year.
ON THIS DAY in 1911, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “Mrs. Suydam Jr., And Her Affinity Told to Get Out: Owner of Manhattan Apartment House Will Have None of Eloping Couple at the Regina.”
The article focused on a former society woman who fell in love with a plumber’s son, leaving her millionaire husband. Needless to say, the romance was not taken well.
“Mrs. Walter Lispenard Suydam Jr. and Frederick Noble have been asked to leave the apartment at 82 West 12th St., Manhattan, where they have been living as ‘Mr. and Mrs. Noble’ ever since Mrs. Suydam left the home of her millionaire husband at Blue Point, L.I., on Sept. 5, because she loved Nobel more than her legal help-mate,” the Eagle reported.
NOTABLE PEOPLE born on this day include New York City-born “Bringing Out the Dead” actor Marc Anthony, who was born in 1969; the late New York City-born “Applause” actress Lauren Bacall, who was born in 1924 and died this past August; Hall of Fame basketball player Elgin Gay Baylor, who was born in 1934; “St. Elsewhere” actor Ed Begley Jr., who was born in 1949; “Gilmore Girls” actress Alexis Bledel, who was born in 1982; “The Cheetah Girls” singer and actress Sabrina Bryan, who was born in 1984; illusionist David Copperfield, who was born in 1956; author and editor Henry Louis Gates Jr., who was born in 1950; former baseball player Orel Leonard Hershiser IV, who was born in 1958; The Jonas Brothers singer Nick Jonas, who was born in 1992; singer B.B.
