Brooklyn Today for November 25

Brooklyn-born actor Jerry Ferrara

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Good morning. Today is the 329th day of the year. On this day in 1902, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported that thieves had tunneled their way through a brick wall in the basement of a department store at Fulton Street and DeKalb Avenue known as Browning, King & Co. While there, the burglars tried to sledgehammer their way into a safe, but apparently something scared them off and they ran away. Found at the scene were some cigarettes, two sandwiches and a half-empty bottle of whiskey.

Well-known people who were born today include  former baseball player and manager Bucky Dent, singer Amy Grant, Hall of Fame football player Lenny Moore, actor-journalist Ben Stein and Brooklyn-born actor Jerry Ferrara.
