Downtown Express

Downtown Express is a must-read in lower Manhattan, providing readers with crucial, ever-changing, in-depth information about quality-of-life, civic and political events, schools and business.

Downtown Express is proud to be the only publication focusing exclusively on all the neighborhoods below Canal Street: Tribeca, the Financial District, City Hall, the Seaport, Chinatown and Battery Park City.

We’re proud recipients of the NYPA’s first place award for Spot News Coverage and the second- place winner for editorials.

Downtown Express reaches an incredibly diverse mix of residents whose neighborhoods are bound together by their geography and their passion for being deeply connected to their community.

As lower New York continues its breathtaking pace of development with the addition of significant residential projects and the completion of the World Trade Center, the positive impact on the economy of these neighborhoods will be considerable. Downtown Express is a leading influence and resource to its residents and workforce.
