The New York Daily News will be returning to Manhattan in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, though not to its 4 New York Plaza digs quite yet, Crain’s reported. The paper, which is owned by Mort Zuckerman, has signed a short-term lease at 1290 Sixth Avenue — a stone’s throw from its rival publication the New York Post, which is at 1211 Sixth Avenue.

Despite the reopening of the 1.1 million-square-foot tower last week, Zuckerman said that he was ready to house his paper in a temporary space for up to a year, as the News’ headquarters was “wiped out” during Sandy.

“Big week for us at [the Daily News] — as of tomorrow, full staff will be working under the same roof for the first time since [Hurricane Sandy],” Lauren Johnston, the Daily News Digital’s managing editor, tweeted.

The terms of the lease were not immediately available, though one source told Crain’s the staff could take one floor of the building, which is owned by Vornado Realty Trust. The property stands 43 stories tall and measures 2 million square feet. [Crain’s]Zachary Kussin
