New York Times

NY Times

The New York Times is an American daily newspaper founded and continuously published in New York City, since 1851.

18 September 1851: "We publish today the first issue of the New York Daily Times, and we intend to issue it every morning (Sundays excepted) for an indefinite number of years to come." The founders were Henry Jarvis Raymond and George Jones.

The www.NYTimes.com website is one of the the most popular American online newspaper websites. Access to the newspaper's online content is through a metered paywall. Frequent users have to purchase a digital subscription.

The print version of the paper remains the largest local metropolitan newspaper in the United States.

Nicknamed "the Gray Lady" and long regarded within the industry as a national "newspaper of record", The New York Times is owned by The New York Times Company.

The paper's motto, printed in the upper left-hand corner of the front page, is "All the News That's Fit to Print." It is organized into sections: News, Opinions, Business, Arts, Science, Sports, Style, Home, and Features.
