From The New York Shitty Photo Pool: Charles J. King

Charles J King Iron & Steel Scrap: Bushwick Brooklyn

Last night I received a call from Chris Arnade. He wanted to know where this building was located (Grand Avenue) and how he could learn more about about its founder: Charles J. King. I suggested the Brooklyn Daily Eagle archives and later did a little digging. I didn’t learn anything about the man behind this wonderful building— but I learned who he was not. Without further ado I present for your April Fool’s Day delectation a case of mistaken identity and a slipped mickey courtesy of the December 16, 1900 edition of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Enjoy!

So there!

Miss Heather
