WNYX-LD is a low-power television station in New York, New York, broadcasting locally on channel 35. Like its sister station WNXY-LD, this station broadcasts community Public-access television-type programming. Much of its programming appeals to various ethnic audiences.

Originally, it began on channel 59 as W59AT and was licensed to Mineola, NY. For a while, it was a translator for WLIG (now WLNY-TV). In 1987, it moved to channel 44, moved to Hicksville, NY, and changed its call letters to W44AI. In 1994, it changed its call letters to WNYX-LP, and in 1997, it moved to channel 35 in New York, NY. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, WNYX aired community programming, some of which were produced by local business and community access studios. Other programming, that was produced in the early 90s, was the pschyic tariot readings. In 2004, WNYX produced an hour long program called The New Yorkers hosted by James Chladek. Another program that was added was Stu Lee movie reviews. Other programming included music videos.

In 2005, WNYX began to air AlmaVision form 9am to 9pm and community programming weeknights and weekends. Later in 2006, Nustrea TV aired full-time, and in 2007, it went back to its current independent status. Metro Studios moved from East 23rd Street to its new location West 42nd Street in Times Square in 2007. Therefore, WNYX ceased operations temporarily from June to late November.

WNYX returned on the air two days before Thanksgiving with a new branding, TV 35 New York. Some of the programming was replaced by The New Yorkers, which airs during the day. During the evenings, old classic movies air along with psychic reading. On weekends, only religious programs air in the mornings. WNYX was not effective during the digital transition in 2009, but it soon dropped the entire programming in favor of another format featuring jared.[clarification needed] WNYX left the air in April 2009.

WNYX returned on the air in November 2010 with a new format, airing mostly religious and paid programming under a new owner Jacobs Broadcasting. Soon after the station rebranded simply as WNYX. TV 35, however, is still available online. Religious programming was dropped in March 2011.
