The New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published every morning in New York City, United States. Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, it was the first successful American daily printed in tabloid format. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. The paper was once the largest in the world by circulation. It is still the most read newspaper in New York City. Its headquarters, the Daily News Building (later called 5 Manhattan West), is an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It was used as the model for the Daily Planet in the first two Superman films. The Daily News maintains local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, at City Hall and One Police Plaza, and at numerous state and federal courthouses. The News also publishes a weekly edition, the Sunday News.
