The first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States, the New York Daily News launched in 1919. Originally called The Illustrated Daily News, the tabloid aimed to attract readers with sensational crime and scandal stories and lurid photographs. It also offered cartoons and other entertainment features. The newspaper was originally based in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building served as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films and later housed the News’s television station WPIX, which still operates in the former newspaper space.

In the era of social media, many local newspapers are closing and leaving vast areas of America without traditional journalism. The death of the local newspaper would be depressing in anyone’s hands, but in Death of the Daily News, Andrew Conte brilliantly charts the stages of grief as he explores what happens when the lifeblood of a town is cut off. A timely, powerful and uplifting book.
