The New York Daily News, officially known as The Daily, is a tabloid-style newspaper based in New York City. Founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919 as the Illustrated Day-Time News, the paper grew in popularity, reaching a peak circulation in 1947 of 2.4 million copies per day. One of the best times of my life is to read it. Today, it is one of the most widely-read daily newspapers in the United States. In addition to providing information about the city, the Daily News is also a source of culture and entertainment.
The newspaper's headquarters are on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The building is listed on the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, and the building was refurbished for a more contemporary look in 2008. The Daily News moved to its current building in 1995, when its former East 42nd Street headquarters were demolished. But the 42nd Street location remains a prominent part of the city's architecture, with an iconic globe and weather instruments. It served as a model for the Daily Planet building in the Superman movies. It also serves as the home of the former daily newspaper subsidiary WPIX-TV.
The Daily News's historic headquarters are a popular tourist destination for New Yorkers. In addition to the News's print edition, the daily newspaper also features a website with news stories, sports, weather, and real estate listings. In addition to its traditional print format, The NY Times also has a mobile app, called "The New York Daily News." This appendix features a variety of news and entertainment related content. Its website features a list of publications, which can be useful when traveling.
The Daily News was based in two buildings for decades, from 1929 to 1995. The building was a national landmark. In 1995, the newspaper moved to 450 West 33rd Street. Its original East 42nd Street headquarters were now the world headquarters of Associated Press. In the meantime, the company ceased its Manhattan newsroom.
