Times’ New Local Section Hits Inboxes, Is Predictable

Today The Times is showing off its “overwhelming” advantage in local news. The new quasi-section “New York Today” just arrived in my inbox, and it looks like what you’d expect.

There are headings for News, Features, Business, Sports, Music, and Opinion, with a sidebar for the Scoop, Books of the Times (Remnick reviewed!), and listings.

Whether an email newsletter that’s packaged like a local section can effectively compete with the Journal‘s impending print version remains to be seen. If not, there’s always the private schools beat and those new features.
