Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Good morning. Today is the 255th day of the year. It’s been a long time since there were woods near Sheepshead Bay, but that’s where a kidnapped girl, Ellen Nagorsky of Midwood, was found by police, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of Sept. 12, 1901. The girl was also described as having been nearly stung to death by mosquitoes. Police said they were closing in on the kidnappers.
Well-known people who were born today include singer Jennifer Hudson, singer Maria Muldaur (“Midnight at the Oasis”), actor Joe Pantoliano (“The Sopranos,” “Risky Business”) and former U.S Senator Scott Brown (R-Massachusetts).
