The New York Times was founded on December 18, 1851, by The New York Times Company, which owns several other large newspapers including The Washington Post.
In terms of circulation, the New York Times is the largest daily newspaper in the United States. It had 1,917,000 daily subscribers and about 25 million monthly readers as of 2017.
The New York Times earned more than $100 million in 2010. Its owner, The New York Times Company, employed about 6,000 people at that time.
The New York Times building is located at 5 West 42nd Street in Manhattan. It was designed in the Art Deco style by Wallace K. Harrison and opened in 1933. The basement houses the Pulitzer Prize offices while the second floor is home to the News Department.
Along with The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post is recognized as one of the main American daily newspapers. It was founded on Saturday, February 21, 1877, by George Frederick Cameron (formerly of the New York Daily News) and Henry Blachford Wilson (a former editor of the Philadelphia Bulletin), as a morning paper to compete with The New York Times which was then published until mid-afternoon.
It is based in Washington, D.C., but also has offices around the world.

Publications. On April 17, 1704, the Boston News-Letter became the first continually published colonial newspaper. The American War of Independence began the following year, and the paper's editor, Benjamin Edes, took a strong anti-British stance. His paper was therefore not welcomed in London and he was ordered to cease publication or go into exile. With help from friends in Massachusetts, Edes moved to Philadelphia where he established another newspaper, the Pennsylvania Journal. This paper was also critical of the British government and was again not appreciated in London. Thus ended the short-lived career of the first daily newspaper in North America.
Its importance cannot be overstated. Without newspapers, the Revolutionary War would have had a very different outcome. Public opinion was running high against Britain at this time; it was only a matter of time before these feelings found expression at the polls.
Not only that, but the BOSTON NEWS-LETTER became the first printed voice to cry foul play when it accused James Quinlan, the king's printer, of murder. It was an important precedent for criminal journalism.
Today, of course, we take print journalism for granted. But in its day, the BOSTON NEWS-LETTER was revolutionary.
