Greetings, Brooklyn. Today is the 323rd day of the year.

ON THIS DAY IN 1919, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “10C. Fare Illegal on Flatbush Ave. Line, Rules P.S.C.”

The article focused on the city’s condemnation of the Brooklyn City Railroad Company charging passengers a second fare.

“This decision marks a complete victory for the residents of Flatbush and Flatlands and the city administration, who have contended that the exaction of a second fare by the company was illegal,” the Eagle reported.
