AM New York is primarily distributed in enclosed newspaper holders ("honor boxes") located on sidewalks and street corners with high pedestrian traffic. "Hawkers", sporting a red amNewYork vest, are paid to offer the free paper to passersby near many major NYCTA transportation hubs and pedestrian traffic areas.

AM New York, along with Newsday, was sold by the Tribune Company to Cablevision in July 2008.[4]
