Plenty of cities had afternoon newspapers (and occasionally one in the evening), but New York is a city that prizes its papers. After all, two of Manhattan’s most famous intersections—Times Square and Herald Square—are named for the publications that were once published there. By the late 1960s, New York’s remaining afternoon broadsheets—the New York World-Telegram & Sun and the New York Journal-American—ceased publication, leaving only a tabloid, the New York Post, as the city’s afternoon paper. In 1981, the Daily News published a short-lived Tonight edition to compete with the Post, which finally abandoned its afternoon version seven years later. In 2000, the Daily News tried one last time to publish an afternoon paper, Daily News Express, but a year later it folded, having become what it was reporting on for the Internet generation: old news.
