With offices out, Daily News keeps publishing

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

The New York Daily News got both its Manhattan main office and its backup location - its printing plant in Jersey City - knocked out of commission by Hurricane Sandy.

Flooding in the main office trapped some staffers there overnight on Monday, and on Thursday, it still wasn't clear when the building would be usable. Some staffers worked from borrowed space, including at The Associated Press. Rival newspapers offered to help with printing.

The main office for the Daily News is on the southern tip of Manhattan, in an evacuation zone close to the water. Thursday evening, workers were still pumping water from the building.

The printing plant, however, was scheduled to start printing again Thursday evening, according to an editor at the paper.
