The site reads a lot like the real newspaper. It is easy to locate the types of articles that you want to read, and everything is listed in a way that makes it functional and appealing. I really liked the way that the most popular articles were listed right there on the first page. is simple to navigate and it’s reputable. I would definitely use this site as a news source.

Being an English major, it has frequently been used as an example of quality writing and suggested as a good source for stories and good grammatical examples. I have been to NYT many times and have found good quality stories in which to do research as well as finding really good information on top new stories. I do enjoy the fact that it is like a newspaper because NYTimes is a very prestigious newspaper, and I just think it's cool. Their site is very simple to navigate through, you can even get NYT delivered to your email box. Another cool plus.

I think this site is extremely informative and very well organized. Just like most news websites, New York Times offers many clips and videos that you can watch about the most popular stories and events. I think that my favorite part of this website were all the links that they had in the far left column. You can find information all the way from politics to fashion and style and you can also access information to all the favorite blogs and the most popular searches by just clicking on a tab. I would definitely visit this site for future reference when looking for an important news article.
