The New York Times (N.Y.T. or N.Y. Times) is an American daily newspaper based in New York City with a worldwide readership.[7][8] Founded in 1851, the Times has since won 130 Pulitzer Prizes (the most of any newspaper),[9] and has long been regarded within the industry as a national "newspaper of record".[10] It is ranked 18th in the world by circulation and 3rd in the U.S.[11]

The paper is owned by The New York Times Company, which is publicly traded. It has been governed by the Sulzberger family since 1896, through a dual-class share structure after its shares became publicly traded.[12] A. G. Sulzberger and his father, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr.—the paper's publisher and the company's chairman, respectively—are the fifth and fourth generation of the family to head the paper.[13]

Since the mid-1970s, The New York Times has expanded its layout and organization, adding special weekly sections on various topics supplementing the regular news, editorials, sports, and features. Since 2008,[14] the Times has been organized into the following sections: News, Editorials/Opinions-Columns/Op-Ed, New York (metropolitan), Business, Sports, Arts, Science, Styles, Home, Travel, and other features.[15] On Sundays, the Times is supplemented by the Sunday Review (formerly the Week in Review),[16] The New York Times Book Review,[17] The New York Times Magazine,[18] and T: The New York Times Style Magazine.[19]

The Times stayed with the broadsheet full-page set-up and an eight-column format for several years after most papers switched to six,[20] and was one of the last newspapers to adopt color photography, especially on the front page.[21] The paper's motto, "All the News That's Fit to Print", appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page.
