The New York City tabloid Daily News was once the largest newspaper in the world. In the 1920s and 1930s it competed with its sister paper, the New York Post, for readers by combining sensational reporting of crime and scandal with high-minded coverage of national politics. The Daily News also offered lurid photographs and cartoons, establishing the tradition of the tabloid press in the United States.

From 1929 to 1995, the paper was housed in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It was the inspiration for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The News moved to 450 West 33rd Street in 1995.
