Brooklyn Times-Union

Brooklyn Times-Union

The Brooklyn Times-Union was launched in 1848 as the Williamsburgh "Daily Times". It became the Brooklyn "Daily Times" when the cities of Brooklyn and Williamsburgh unified in 1855. The newspaper supported the Republican Party, and the Abolition movement. Walt Whitman was one of their reporters, and was later athe Managing Editor after he left the Brooklyn "Daily Eagle".

The paper was published both Daily and Sunday, and had a peak circulation that included all of Kings County, and large segments of Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

The Daily Times was renamed the Brooklyn "Times-Union" after it bought out the Brooklyn "Standard Union" in 1932, and was itself bought out by the Brooklyn "Eagle" in 1937’’’Kenneth T. Jackson: ‘’The Encyclopedia of New York City’’’’’: The New York Historical Society; Yale University Press; 1995.] .

Brooklyn's Times Plaza at the intersections of Flatbush Avenue; Atlantic Avenue, Fourth Avenue, Ashland Place, State Street, and Hanson Place was named for this newspaper.
