New York Times Raises Price By 50 Cents to $3

The Sunday paper will still cost $5 in the metro area.



    The price of The New York Times has gone up — by 50 cents.

    On city newsstands, the Times now costs $2.50 for the Monday through Saturday editions.

    However, Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy says the big Sunday paper still costs the same: $5 in the New York area and $6 in the rest of the country. And the cost of digital subscriptions remains the same.

    Home delivery is up by about 4 percent.

    It's the paper's first increase in more than two years. The Times declined to comment on the reason or how much revenue will be generated.

    The change kicked in on Monday. Home delivery subscribers received a notice about six weeks ago.
