Default "New York Times" in London

Does anybody knows where it is possible to purchase the "New York Times" in London?

The only available similar newspaper is Harald Tribune. But, I need "New York Times".

I would be grateful if anybody knows the answer.
Thanks in adwance.

The Herald Tribune is actually owned by the New York Times. That is basically the outlet through which they publish and international edition in Europe, although in some places you can still buy the NY times.

- Your best bet is to subscribe to this:

It is the NY Times electronic edition. Not a website but rather a download of the whole paper that you can just download every morning (in adobe .pdf format). I'm not 100% sure if you cant print it as per their rules, but with a couple of wide available tools, *PDF grabber, cough, cough* you shuld have a facsimile of the times right there from your printer.

The New York Times Launches Electronic Edition on NewsStand

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The New York Times has announced that it is launching The New York Times Electronic Edition, an exact replica of the newspaper's New York edition that can be downloaded via the Internet to a laptop or desktop PC. NewsStand, Inc., a publishing technology provider in which The New York Times Co. has a minority equity position, will serve as the digital circulation service for the Electronic Edition. Information about subscriptions and single-copy purchases can be obtained at http://www.nytimes.com/ee or http://www.newsstand.com.
"NewsStand's technology allows us to deliver the Times anywhere in the world," said Scott Heekin-Canedy, senior vice president of circulation for The New York Times. "Readers may download an electronic copy of each day's paper to their computer, paying on a subscription or single-copy basis."

The Electronic Edition can be downloaded to computers that have high-speed Internet access and can then be read off-line. In this initial phase, the Electronic Edition is available to broadband users only. Dial-up modem accessibility will be offered soon. Once it is downloaded, the Electronic Edition is available on the user's PC for 7 days.

Readers can download an exact replica of the paper's New York edition, which is normally not available in print outside the New York metropolitan region. Users can perform word searches and zoom in on articles or photos that are automatically resized for easy viewing. There are also several choices for navigating the Electronic Edition. Readers can browse page by page, start with a particular section, or read a complete article by clicking on a link that jumps to the continuation of the article on another page.

The Electronic Edition offers three subscription options: a 7-day subscription for $6.70 per week, a 5-day subscription for $3.25 per week, and a Sunday-only subscription for $3.40 per week. Readers can also buy single copies via an electronic "wallet" that requires a minimum purchase of $10 to download single issues of the Electronic Edition. Use of the wallet is not limited to a specific time period; purchases of single copies can be made against it at any time.

"NewsStand's distribution service creates a new way for the Times and its advertisers to reach wider audiences. Like our Web site (http://www.nytimes.com), NewsStand's Electronic Edition of the Times expands our delivery channels and allows us to provide our quality content to readers in the medium that best suits their needs," said Heekin-Canedy.
This is an interesting criticism of these "electronic editions" by the way:

- Or if you dont want to pay, you can just register at the NY Times Wesbsite of free and read the paper there. Its all there i.e. the entire paper complete articles. But of course its website format so in order to get the whole paper, youd have to print it put article by article

You will probably find it in one of the London stores of 'Borders' books, the American bookshop chain which also sells magazines, newspapers, DVDs, CDs etc.:

http://www.bordersstores.co.uk (they have a list of locations... why not phone one or two of them?)

If not, try a large 5* hotel in Central London which is likely to have a newsagency in the lobby, a US chain such as the Marriott, Radisson Edwardian or Hilton for example. I'm also pretty sure I've seen international newspapers on sale around the Leicester Square area....basically anywhere which is a draw for tourists. Also check out the vicinity of the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square as the US newspapers are likely to be in demand.
