AM New York Metro (stylized as amNewYorkMetro) is a morning free daily newspaper that is published in New York City by Schneps Media.[1] According to the company, the average Friday circulation in September 2013 was 335,900.[2] When launched on October 10, 2003, AM New York was the first free daily newspaper in New York City.[3]

AM New York is primarily distributed in enclosed newspaper holders ("honor boxes") located on sidewalks and street corners with high pedestrian traffic. "Hawkers", sporting a red amNewYork vest, are paid to offer the free paper to passersby near many major transportation hubs and other areas with high pedestrian traffic.

History

AM New York, along with Newsday, was sold by the Tribune Company to Cablevision in July 2008.[4] AM New York was acquired by Schneps Media from Newsday Media Group in October 2019.[5][6] and subsequently merged with Metro New York to become AM New York Metro in January 2020.[7]
