1975...Four people are killed when a bomb explodes outside historic Fraunces Tavern on Broad and Pearl Streets. The blast is one of 49 bombings in the mid-1970s attributed to the Puerto Rican nationalist group FALN. The landmark tavern was the site of George Washington's farewell to his officers after the American Revolution.

Today's New Yorker birthdays include singer/songwriter Neil Diamond, born in 1941.
