From the Brooklyn Magazine, April, 1885.—James S. T. Stranahan was a Brooklyn politician born in 1808; he presided at the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge, and would live just long enough to see his dream of Greater New York come to pass. It is probably not necessary to point out that many of the predictions in this article did come true: that New York and Brooklyn were combined, and that the child born in 1885 might easily have lived to see a combined city of more than five million inhabitants.
