The Village Voice is a New York City-based weekly newspaper featuring investigative articles, analysis of current affairs and culture, arts reviews and events listings for New York City. It was the first and is arguably the best known of the arts-oriented tabloids that have come to be known as alternative weeklies.

The Voice was founded by Dan Wolf, Ed Fancher and Norman Mailer in the fall of 1955. It has published groundbreaking investigations of New York City politics, as well as reporting on local and national politics, with arts, culture, music, dance, film, and theater reviews.

The Voice has published many well-known writers, including Ezra Pound, Henry Miller, Katherine Anne Porter, James Baldwin, E. E. Cummings, Nat Hentoff, Ted Hoagland, Tom Stoppard, Lorraine Hansberry, Jerry Tallmer, Allen Ginsberg, Murray Kempton, I.F. Stone, Pete Hamill, Michael Musto, and Roger Wilkins.

Former editors have included Dan Wolf, Clay Felker, Tom Morgan, Marianne Partridge, David Schneiderman, Robert Friedman, Marty Gottlieb, Jonathan Larsen, and Karen Durbin.

The Voice's competitors in New York City include the New York Press, New York Observer, and Time Out New York. After decades of carrying a cover price, competition from the free New York Press forced the Voice to become free of charge the late 1990s.

Several papers around the United States are owned by the Voice: City Pages (Minneapolis-St. Paul), LA Weekly, Nashville Scene, OC Weekly, and Seattle Weekly.
