More New York Stories

Monday, January 03, 2011

Former New York Times City section editor Constance Rosenblum talks about the local news and idiosyncratic, personal stories that appeared in the now defunct section of the Times. She gathered 50 of the section’s best pieces into More New York Stories: The Best of the City Section of The New York Times. She’s joined by two of the book’s contributors John Freeman Gill, Ben Gibberd and Saki Knafo.

It bears mentioning that the City Section was also created in response to the advent of New York Newsday (now defunct) and it's providing a quality of coverage then lacking in all the city dailies.

For those of us living outside NYC, please briefly tell us why the section was discontinued. Was it the cost of salaries and newsprint or was it because they had trouble selling ads for the section? I imagine all the big advertisers want to be in the A-section.

Thanks, Lenny...and Happy New Year.
