The Brooklyn Eagle was a daily newspaper that was published in Brooklyn for over 114 years. Founded in 1841 by Isaac van Anden and Henry Cruse Murphy, the newspaper was originally named the Brooklyn Eagle and King's County Democrat . In 1850, the name was changed to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle . By the early 1860s, the newspaper had become one of the most widely read papers in the United States. In 1938, the newspaper underwent another name change when it became the Brooklyn Eagle . Frank D. Schroth bought the paper in 1940 and continued to publish it until 1955 when the Eagle ceased publication during a lengthy strike by the New York Newspaper Guild. Between 1960 and 1963, the Eagle once again resumed publication, this time as a weekly paper (though for a short time as a daily). The run was short-lived and the Brooklyn Eagle office closed in December 1963. In 1996, J. Dozier Hasty, the owner and publisher of Brooklyn Heights Press, purchased the Eagle's name and logo and began to publish the Brooklyn Daily Eagle & Daily Bulletin . As of 2011, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle & Daily Bulletin remains a daily newspaper, published five days per week.

In 1850, the name was changed to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle . By the early 1860s, the newspaper had become one of the most widely read papers in the United States. Over the years the newspaper persevered through both good and bad times, experiencing declines in readership and circulation but also winning accolades such as receiving four Pulitzer Prizes.

In 1938, the newspaper underwent another name change when it became the Brooklyn Eagle . Frank D. Schroth bought the paper in 1940 and continued to publish it until 1955 when the Eagle ceased publication during a lengthy strike by the New York Newspaper Guild. Bankruptcy followed.

Brooklyn was officially established in 1646 by Dutch settlers, and was one of the six original towns comprising the present-day borough of Brooklyn, the others being Bushwick, Flatbush, Flatlands, Gravesend, and New Utrecht. The six towns were later placed under the administrative jurisdiction of Kings County by the English, who in 1664 supplanted the Dutch as the dominant colonial power in the region. In 1816, the town of Brooklyn was incorporated as the Village of Brooklyn, and in 1834 it was chartered as the City of Brooklyn. Over the next several decades, the expanding city annexed the other five original towns of Kings County. In 1898, the City of Brooklyn became a borough of the newly-consolidated New York City.

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle was a daily newspaper that was published in Brooklyn for over 114 years. Founded in 1841 by Isaac van Anden and Henry Cruse Murphy, the newspaper had become one of the most widely read papers in the United States by the 1860s.
