NEW YORK (AFP) - 

New York's venerable "Village Voice" newspaper delivered its final print edition on Wednesday after six decades as a cultural touchpoint and is now going digital only.

The paper announced the end of its print edition at the end of August, saying it hoped to "revitalize" and "reimagine" the "Village Voice" brand.

Founded in 1955 by the American writer Norman Mailer, as well as Dan Wolf and Ed Fancher, the weekly focused on culture and politics quickly became an institution.

Born of the cultural bustle of the Greenwich Village neighborhood, the Voice was a place where ideas and debate flourished.

And it broke a lot of news thanks to solid investigative journalism. The paper won three Pulitzer prizes.
