The New York Observer

The New York Observer, founded by Arthur L. Carter in 1987, is the weekly newspaper of New York. It is published every Wednesday, and refreshed daily at www.observer.com.

Why it’s in the Showcase: The New York Observer recently migrated from Drupal to WordPress as part of their relaunch. The site’s redesign “focused on cleaner presentation that would accommodate more breaking news and higher volume posting”, says Elizabeth Spiers, the paper’s editor-in-chief.
