LIU baseball gets a taste of NY’s cold weather

As the LIU Brooklyn baseball team was getting ready for its home opener this Saturday, the Blackbirds were in Queens on Wednesday to take on the St. John’s Red Storm, and it looked like they had some trouble adjusting to the cold weather after their early-season road trip to Texas and Florida.

The Blackbirds committed four errors in the first three innings that cost them seven runs as they went on to lose to the Red Storm 8-5 at Jack Kaiser Stadium in Queens on Wednesday. It was a game they could have won without those errors.


Howe's Brooklyn: A 1907 Brooklyn March, other music time forgot, featured to raise funds for Promenade Gardens

Finally, after all these years, the 1907 Brooklyn Daily Eagle Bridge Crush March is heard live by a 21st Century audience in Brooklyn Heights.

Written at the turn of the last century by William E. Slafer, bandmaster of Slafer’s Brooklyn Marine Band, the ominously-titled march could have been simply paying homage to the daily ‘crush’ of commuters who took the trolley over Brooklyn Bridge in the early 1900s.

Longtime Heights resident praises Eagle reporter

To the editors:
It was very fitting that the Brooklyn Heights Association honored your Mary Frost at its annual meeting. Her coverage of the LICH (Long Island College Hospital's) struggle for survival has been just extraordinary. Her writing is cogent and succinct; her reporting is remarkably thorough and complete; her diligence is as evident as it is commendable. One can only hope her work can receive further honors from her journalist peers -- and that the Brooklyn community can continue to be the beneficiaries of her dedication.
