Ownership & Funding

Upper East Site is a journalist-owned, reader-funded, independent and non-partisan newsroom whose mission is to gather and deliver accurate and compelling coverage of NYC’s Upper East Side.

The majority of Upper East Site’s funding comes from subscriptions, with display advertising and merchandise sales making up just a small portion of our organization’s revenue.

Upper East Site retains full authority over our editorial content and our coverage is not influenced by our sources of revenue.

Each and every dollar we receive helps support the production of high-quality journalism you’ve come to expect from Upper East Site’s newsroom.

We aren’t here to churn out ‘content’ for clicks, but rather to earn your trust by delivering on our promise to be The Upper East Side’s News Leader.

We believe our work is worth supporting, and hope you’ll show yours by subscribing today.
