AM New York (stylized as amNewYork) is a morning free daily newspaper that is published in New York City by Newsday.[2] According to the company, the average Friday circulation in September 2013 was 335,900.[3] When launched on October 10, 2003, AM New York was the first free daily newspaper in New York City.[4] Its main competitor is Metro New York, which followed amNewYork into the market, using similar distribution and marketing strategies.

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 NYCTA transportation hubs and pedestrian traffic areas.

AM New York, along with Newsday, was sold by the Tribune Company to Cablevision in March 2008.[5]
