To the Editor:

The recent purchase of Dan’s Papers by is great news for readers of both publications. In today’s global economy, boundaries at the city line between New York City and mean very little

Each weekday, well over two hundred thousand Long Island residents travel to jobs in NYC—the economic engine of our Metropolitan region. Many others enjoy sporting events, the theater, museums, restaurants and shopping. A growing number of NYC residents have become reverse commuters to jobs on Long Island. It is naive to believe that NYC can survive economically in today’s ever-changing technology and global economy without Long Island and the rest of Metropolitan New York. The suburbs around the Big Apple are equally dependent on the success of NYC.

Let’s hope the merger of Dan’s Papers with Manhattan Media can serve as a model for others to emulate.
