The New York Times (NYT) is an American daily newspaper, founded and continuously published in New York City since 1851. The paper is owned by The New York Times Company, which is publicly traded but primarily controlled by the Ochs-Sulzberger family through a dual-class share structure.
It has won 108 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other news organization. Its website is America’s most popular newspaper site, receiving more than 30 million unique visitors per month.
Nicknamed “The Gray Lady“, The New York Times has long been regarded within the industry as a national “newspaper of record“. The paper’s motto, “All the News That’s Fit to Print”, appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page.
The paper’s print version remains the largest local metropolitan newspaper in the United States and third-largest newspaper overall, behind The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
