The Offices Of The Brooklyn Daily Eagle 1916.

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle was published between 1841 and 1955 in Brooklyn, New York City. Among the Eagle’s many distinguished editors were Walt Whitman, Thomas Kinsella, St. Clair McKelway, Cleveland Rogers, Frank D. Schroth, and Charles Montgomery Skinner.
The Brooklyn Daily Bulletin took over the original Eagle moniker in 1955 when the original paper went under after a prolonged strike by The Newspaper Guild. In 1996 it merged with a newly revived Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and now publishes a morning paper five days a week under the Brooklyn Daily Eagle name.

This cast-zinc eagle, seen above the enterance to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle was sculpted in 1892 by the Piccirilli Brothers and cast at the Hecla Iron Works in Williamsburg.
The sculpture was removed when the building was demolished in 1955 after the newspaper folded earlier the same year. The eagle statue then became the property of the Brooklyn Historical Society and is now on display at the Central library in new York.
