The New York Daily News’ headquarters, at 4 New York Plaza, were wiped out by Hurricane Sandy. According to The New York Observer, the damage was so bad that the offices — which also house US News & World Report — might be uninhabitable for a year.
“We have just leased some other space for nine months to a year just to make sure that we can keep the magazine and the newspaper going,” said Mort Zuckerman, at a real estate conference. “We suffered dramatically on the publishing side because the U.S. News and the Daily News offices were at the southernmost part of Manhattan and their offices were just destroyed.”
Luckily for the Daily News, other papers lent a helping hand to ensure that the tabloid got printed. That, said Zuckerman, shifted his perspective. “In one sense a terrible experience was in the other sense a wonderful experience,” added Zuckerman.
