The short-lived New York Free Press was an attempt to replicate the success of the Los Angeles Free Press, but only lasted about a year. It was published by Jack Banning and started asa community newspaper owned by Upper West Side liberals.

Like other weeklies, the New York Free Press reprinted Charles Bukowski's "Notes of a Dirty Old Man" column from Open City.

Published on December 5, 1968, this copy features a lengthy Dirty Old Man column about being in a room with a prostitute and her little brother.

The rear full page cover features an advertisement for the Nico album "the marble index".

This copy is in Very Good ++ condition with a missing eight-of-a-page advertisement that has been clipped. The column itself is untouched. Someone also wrote the date of publication in pen on the front cover.

All in all, a solid and attractive copy of this scarce weekly.
