"The Eagle has landed! In collaboration with, and building on an earlier digitization initiative funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences, BPL now offers the full run of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper, from 1841 to 1955, as a free online resource. Learn more about using this database here, and visit the Brooklyn Collection to explore materials on Brooklyn's rich history, including books, photographs, prints, directories and maps and atlases."

I know the EAGLE has long been available at the Fulton newspaper site, but the search engine here is much more user-friendly.
