New York’s Picture Newspaper; New York’s Hometown Newspaper (New York Daily News)
"...the New York Times, the Daily News..." So sang Billy Joel, when in a "New York State of Mind."

The New York Daily News began as the Illustrated Daily News. The New York Public Library's microfilm is cut; the first issue there is August 5, 1919. The "camera with wings" symbol is on the masthead. There is no motto/slogan.

"New York's Picture Paper," then "New York's Picture Newspaper" began in March 1920. It became a long-running slogan for the newspaper. In 1991, this was replaced with "Forward With New York."

"Forward With New York" didn't last long. Maybe too many people confused it with the Jewish Daily Forward?

"New York's Hometown Newspaper" began in January 1992 and continues today.
