The CNC's NY Times Page Is Live

2009_11_19_NYT.jpg We pondered the new Chicago section of the NY Times and even reminded you yesterday it's here. I actually picked up a copy this morning but haven't had time to read it yet. However, lucky for me (and all of you, right?) you can also access the content online here. Besides the CNC's NY Times content, the site also features Chicago-centric headlines from other sources as well as links to other helpful Chicago sites (including us!). Of course, if you're reading this then you probably already know that stuff.

So what of the CNC's content? Today's main story focuses on the profits for Chicago Parking Meters LLC, the private company to whom the city's parking meters were leased; company projections are for almost $80 million in revenue for 2010. At that rate, it won't take them long to make up the price they paid for the 75-year contract. So it's a good start. We'll still need more time to see how well the section pans out, and while nothing in today's edition is ground-breaking, it seems it's off to a decent start and at least we know where to look to keep track.
