at The Times buildingと定冠詞theも大文字で始めていることを気になった方がもしかしたらいるかもしれません。以前気になって聞いたことがあるのですがそのネイティブの説明だとThe New York Timesと紙名にTheも含まれているからだそうです。NYTのサイトに行くとそのようですね。ロングマンではTheも大文字で始めていますが、オックスフォードは小文字ですね(汗)

(ロングマン)
New York Times, The
a serious daily newspaper which is produced in New York City. It is sold everywhere in the US and in many other countries, and people in the US often just call it 'the Times'.


(オックスフォード)
the New York Times
a famous US newspaper read mainly by people who are well educated. The paper is published each morning in New York and can also be bought all round the world. There is also a large Sunday issue. The Times first appeared in 1851 (as the New York Daily Times) and has won more Pulitzer Prizes than any other newspaper, including one for the Pentagon Papers. The New York Times Company also owns radio and television stations, magazines and other newspapers, including the International New York Times.

ただtheを小文字で見出語に立てているNew York Postのサイトに行ってみると確かにタイトルにtheは含まれていませんね。

(ロングマン)
New York Post, the
a US daily newspaper produced in New York City, which includes a lot of gossip (=information about famous people's private lives) and reports events in ways that make them seem as strange, exciting, or shocking as possible
