The New York Times Launches City Room

The New York Times announced today the launch of City Room (, a new Metro news blog and online community dedicated to responding quickly to important news and information throughout New York City. Sewell Chan, Times Metro reporter, is the City Room bureau chief and will leverage the unique talent and resources of The Times’s one hundred-plus-person Metro staff.

City Room provides online readers with in-depth reports from the five boroughs of the city, as well as occasional reports from the surrounding, suburbs on topics such as government and politics; crime and public safety; schools; transportation; housing and economy; and people and neighborhoods. It will enhance and supplement Metro articles from The Times, offer non-news features about the history and civic culture of the city, and encourage reader comments and discussion.
