NEW YORK: Big Apple daily The New York Times is now appearing in a smaller format, having trimmed 1.5 inches from its width. The changes, which came into effect yesterday (Monday), follow similar re-sizing by the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.

NYT spokeswoman Diane McNulty said the move will save the paper around $10 million (€7.25m; £4.9m) a year. It will also allow it to sell ad space in the same sizes used in other titles. Until now ads have had to be resized to fit in the NYT's pages.
