The New York Sunday World was a weekly newspaper published in New York City from 1860 to 1931. It was part of the World newspaper chain, which was founded by Joseph Pulitzer in the late 19th century and became one of the most influential media organizations in the United States.

The Sunday World was known for its sensationalist headlines and coverage of crime, scandals, and human interest stories. It was one of the first newspapers to feature photographs and illustrations alongside text, and it often used these visual elements to capture readers' attention and convey the drama of its stories.

One of the most famous features of the Sunday World was its "Nellie Bly" series, which chronicled the adventures of journalist Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman (pen name Nellie Bly) as she traveled around the world in 72 days, exposed corruption in mental hospitals, and interviewed notable figures of the day. Bly's reporting was groundbreaking for its time and helped to establish the Sunday World as a leading voice in American journalism.

In addition to its news coverage, the Sunday World also featured a variety of entertainment and lifestyle content, including serialized fiction, fashion and beauty advice, and sports coverage. It was popular with a broad cross-section of New York City residents, from working-class readers to wealthy socialites.

The Sunday World ceased publication in 1931, as the World newspaper chain struggled financially during the Great Depression. However, its legacy lives on as a pioneering example of American journalism and a reflection of the cultural and social trends of its time.
