A newspaper is a periodical publication containing articles written by professional journalists. They are usually published on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and contain information about current events, locally, nationally and internationally. They are intended for the general public and usually require little or no subject knowledge to read. Newspapers come in a variety of formats including tabloid, broadsheet and mini newspapers.
The New York Daily News is a tabloid daily newspaper founded in 1919 and the first successful U.S. newspaper printed in tabloid format. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons and entertainment features.

The paper is based in the News Building on 42nd Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan, an iconic city landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood and used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.
