Finding a newspaper on your doorstep is preferable to finding bottles of milk that have been sweating in the sun or unmarked babies. Clog your porch with newspaper to prevent baby drop-offs with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a one-year subscription (49 issues) to The New York Observer (a $29.50 value), which covers New York's politics, media, culture, real estate, society, and more.
As ingrained an NYC institution as its giant ape-repelling air force, the Observer both informs and entertains savvy Big Applers with behind-the-scenes reporting, revealing profiles of local movers-and-shakers and commentary with a refreshingly alternative angle. Peruse the newspaper's politics section for sharp, confident news pieces, or hit the Wall Street section to see how your investments are doing. The Observer's culture section provides a fresh perspective on the city's arts, music, and theater, such as its recent report on the opening of the New York City Ballet's seasonal performances. The media section dishes the buzz on the country's most prominent publications. And instead of angrily debating controversial New York issues with your brazenly silent bulldog, poke through the Observer 's opinion pages for an op-ed piece that both challenges your preconceptions and engages your intellect.
With its amusing but informed voice, The New York Observer speaks the language of highly educated and perpetually curious urbanites. Stimulate your mind with the newspaper's entertaining tone while gaining enough insider knowledge to run for mayor of the city's ethereal sixth borough, Floaten Island.

<i>The New York Observer</i>
Founded by Arthur L. Carter in 1987, The New York Observer combines behind-the-scenes reporting and insightful commentaries to keep the people abreast of the latest goings-on about town. Published every Wednesday, the weekly's features delve into national and citywide politics. Columns such as Kevin Baker's politically focused Shrinking Brain and Nina Burleigh's women's-issues-based The Bombshell take a more opinionated approach to the headlines. The Wall Street section examines the market's recent ups and downs, Betabeat profiles the figures behind the tech industry, and the real estate pages reveals the newest occupants of popular city properties. As GalleristNY chronicles the New York art world, the rest of the culture section offers takes on art exhibitions, theatrical productions, concerts, films, and up-and-coming pigeons in the park.
