Metro New York is a free daily newspaper in New York City. It was launched on May 5, 2004 by Metro International.[1] Its main competition is amNewYork, which launched the previous year and practices many of the same distribution and marketing strategies.

Metro New York is primarily distributed by "hawkers" paid to station themselves in areas with high pedestrian traffic, who offer the free paper to anyone who passes by. The publishing company offers similar weekday Metro papers in Boston and Philadelphia. In 2009, Metro International sold its US papers to a former executive.[2]

Frank Burgos has been editor-in-chief of Metro US since 2015.[3][4]
