Our NYC city news portal was launched 20 years ago by a team of NYT reporters. Since then our online city digest grew to become much bigger. Now we're a direct competitor with the ABCNewYork and NBCNewYork local news outlets. We employ a total of 100 staff and freelance writers, editors and photography reporters. Since day 1 our founder, former NYT senior editor Jonathan Lazenby works hard. He inspires our team to make news insights sharper and our NYC coverage touch all 5 boroughs of the city.
