Cleanpoint!

Wishing to steer clear of the downright nasty heat today I have whiled away the afternoon by knocking around the apartment doing housework and perusing the Brooklyn Daily Eagle archives. Mostly the latter— which is where I found this plum of story from the June 9, 1896 edition which proposes that our fair burg might soon be re-christened Cleanpoint. With a hefty helping of patriotism and child labor, naturally.

Looks like we still have a ways to go.
