Founded in New York City in 1851, The New York Times (also known as the New Yorker or the New York Times) is an American daily newspaper with a global audience. The New York Times, which was founded in 1851, has earned 132 Pulitzer Prizes (the most of any newspaper) and has long been considered as a national "journal of record" by its peers. It is the 18th most widely read newspaper in the world and the third most widely read newspaper in the United States, according to circulation.

The New York Times Company, which is a publicly listed corporation, owns the publication. Following the company's first public offering in 1896, it has been controlled by the Sulzberger family via a dual-class share structure. A. G. Sulzberger and his father, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., are the fifth and fourth generations of the Sulzberger family to serve as the paper's publisher and business chairman, respectively.

Following an expansion in style and organisation in the mid-1970s, The New York Times began to provide special weekly sections on a variety of themes to augment the normal news, editorials and sports coverage. Founded in 1851, the New York Times has been divided into the following sections: news, opinion columns, editorials, and editorial pages; New York (metropolitan); business; sports; arts; science; fashion; home; travel; and other features. There are many supplements to The New York Times on Sundays, including the Sunday Review (formerly known as the Week in Review), the Book Review, The New York Times Magazine.
