This Day in History...

In case anyone is interested, on this date in history the following events occur:

In 1776: The American Revolution continues on as the New Jersey Militia get involved and cross into Queens to disarm and arrest British loyalists in Newtown.

In 1972: Former Yankee catcher and soon-to-be Met manager Yogi Berra is voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

In 1994: New Yorkers brave a record-breaking deep freeze, as the termperature dipped to -2 degrees below zero.

Anyone have anything else they know that happened this day in NYC history?
