Founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson, the New York Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States and is still one of the largest. It reached its zenith in 1947, with a circulation of 2.4 million copies.
The Daily News was one of the most prominent newspapers in New York City at the turn of the century, with an enormous and impressive building (see below). Until 1995 it was located on Second Avenue in Manhattan’s Financial District in an architectural landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
Today, it operates under the auspices of New York News Inc., a subsidiary of Chicago-based Tribune Company. It publishes a large number of local and national newspapers, including the Daily News, the Daily News on Sunday, the Daily News on the Web, and the Daily News Magazine.
