The New York Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first successful tabloid in the United States. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons. During its heyday in the 1920s, the News had the highest circulation of any daily newspaper in the world.
From 1929 to 1995, the newspaper was headquartered in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue. The building, which was an official city and national landmark, was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It was a model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The News moved to 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West) in 1995.
Each day, the Yale Daily News publishes a main article as well as an opinion section and several special issues, including YDN Magazine, WKND, and a series of alumni issues each year that highlight the successes of graduates who have gone on to great achievements in journalism and public life. The News is the oldest college daily in the nation and many of its writers, editors and contributors have gone on to distinguished careers as journalists and leaders in public service. The newspaper is financially and editorially independent from the University. In 2021, an anonymous alumnus made a significant gift to support the ongoing preservation of the Yale Daily News Historical Archive.
