The News Building (also known as the Daily News Building or simply “The News”) is a former United States newspaper building in New York City, based on the original design by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It is located at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan West, adjacent to Pennsylvania Station and the Associated Press world headquarters. The News was the first tabloid paper in the US. The newspaper is now owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company.
Founded in 1919, the Daily News has a reputation for presenting extensive political coverage, particularly of national politics, and a liberal leaning in editorial opinion. It is widely regarded as the left-leaning counterpart to the right-leaning New York Post.
