Greetings, Brooklyn. Today is the 245th day of the year.

ON THIS DAY IN 1907, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “Boy Rolling Barrel When it Exploded.”

The article focused on a group of young boys trying to start fires in barrels and accidentally causing an explosion.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

“The hoops were rent asunder and flew back like whips, lashing [the] associates about the body and legs,” the Eagle reported. “Neighbors of the lads in Greenfield did not extend much sympathy to the injured, as they claim they are members of a gang that delights in doing disorderly things.”


NOTABLE PEOPLE born on this day include Hall of Fame basketball player NATHANIEL “TINY” ARCHIBALD, who was born in New York City in 1948; sportscaster and Hall of Fame football player TERRY BRADSHAW, who was born in 1948; dancer and actress MARGE CHAMPION, who was born in 1919; Hall of Fame tennis player JIMMY CONNORS, who was born in 1952; sportscaster and Hall of Fame football player ERIC DICKERSON, who was born in 1960; “NCIS” actor MARK HARMON, who was born in 1951; “Frida” actress SALMA HAYEK, who was born in 1966; “Matlock” actress LINDA PURL, who was born in 1955; “The Matrix” actor KEANU REEVES, who was born in 1964; former Commissioner of Baseball PETER VICTOR UEBERROTH, who was born in 1937; and “Lost” actress CYNTHIA WATROS, who was born in 1968.
