The Daily News Archive

The Daily News is an American daily newspaper founded in 1905. It is printed in tabloid format, with a daily circulation of more than 2.4 million copies, and is the eleventh highest-circulated newspaper in the United States. It is the oldest college daily newspaper in the nation and remains in print every day that Yale University is in session. The newspaper is available both online and in print and has a large and loyal readership, especially among New York City residents.

It is an important source for the latest news in the city, national and international news, political coverage, sports, entertainment, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and more. The newspaper is also well known for its photojournalism and often features photographs of important figures and events in the city, as well as photos of celebrities and other popular culture icons.

This archive contains all the news stories published in the paper since its inception in 1905, as well as photos and other archival material. It is the largest collection of news articles from a single newspaper in digital form in the world. This collection is made possible through a generous gift from an anonymous Yale alumnus, which has facilitated the migration of the Daily News Historical Archive to a new platform and enables additional issues to be added.

Unlike other newspapers, the Daily News is known for its hard-hitting journalism and sometimes sensational headlines. The newspaper has been a significant force in the city’s politics and business, and has long engaged in circulation battles with the rival tabloid New York Post. The News’s most famous headline is probably the 1975 “Ford to City: Drop Dead” (which was a play on the Ford Motor Company’s announcement that it would discontinue its automobile production in New York City). The News has been located at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building was used as the model for the Daily Planet in the first two Superman films.

Daily News provides the latest news from the world’s greatest city. It delivers the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets updates, as well as all the latest in politics, crime and pop culture. The New York Times calls it the most trusted source for news in New York. Its journalists scour 100+ sources so you can get the real story.
