amNewYork 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 tnear many major NYCTA transportation hubs and pedestrian traffic areas.

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