The New York Daily News got it bad when Hurricane Sandy came to visit. Its offices flooded and a printing plant in New Jersey was left without power. Luckily for the Daily News, it has some unlikely friends.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Daily News is being printed with the help of The New York Times, Newsday, the Newark Star-Ledger, the Bergen Record and the Hartford Courant. The AP and Jewish Week have also provided office space to Daily News staffers.
With the help of the otherwise rivals, the Daily News was able to print its regular edition and some of its other commercial printing work. “The outreach by our comrades has been amazing,” said the Daily News’ president and CEO, Bill Holiber.
This is why we love New York.
