Darkness Falls Across the Land, NYT Officially Cuts City Section

It’s official. The NYO is reporting that NYT executive editor Bill Keller has sent a memo out to staff confirming the closure of the ever excellent City Section along with a host of other changes including the elimination of fashion spreads in the Sunday Magazine, to name a few.

We will consolidate Sunday Metro area coverage in a new Sunday feature section, which will be a showcase for news and features from the city and beyond. (Metro area breaking news will be incorporated into the A-book.). The new section will include zoned pages for Connecticut, New Jersey, Westchester and Long Island. Joe Sexton and Jodi Rudoren have taken on the project of developing a prototype, and we hope to launch the new section on May 24, replacing the City section and regional weeklies.

The Observer has the full memo here.
