" "ArtPride NJ can confirm that "As of August 29th, The [New York] Times will discontinue the regional editions of the Metropolitan section of The New York Times, which include Connecticut, Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey. Those areas will receive the Metropolitan edition that currently circulates in the five boroughs." This means, without a regional Metro edition, readers will no longer receive the type of dedicated content they’ve come to expect from The Times, including feature articles, listings and reviews of performances, exhibitions and restaurants in New Jersey. Read more about this news here. If you have enjoyed this regional content with your Sunday morning coffee, here are a few ways to let the Times know how much you will miss browsing through these Jersey Arts stories and reviews.
