About City Paper

Published since 1981, Washington City Paper is a general-interest publication and an online destination for local urban explorers. It specializes in features rather than news, with an emphasis on urban issues and politics, arts and entertainment, restaurants, and the peculiar pros and cons of city life. In addition, City Paper publishes comprehensive film, theater, music, gallery, dance, and museum guides and a large classified advertising section. It is well-known as a showcase for some of the citys most talented journalists, critics, and artists.

City Paper is a controlled-circulation weekly, printed in a tabloid format on newsprint. More than 73,000 copies are distributed in the District of Columbia and the close-in suburbs of Maryland and Virginia.
