What is the oldest NYC newspaper still in publication?

The New York Post, founded in 1801, is the oldest New York City newspaper in continuous publication. It has changed over the years, starting out conservative, and becoming more liberal in the nineteenth century, when it strongly opposed slavery and supported Lincoln and Reconstruction. In the twentieth century it went to tabloid format, and became famously sensationalistic and conservative against Rupert Murdoch.
