The Onion’s A.V. Club in New York is closing. “Apologies if you receive this more than once, but today is my last day as the city editor of The A.V. Club in New York,” Andy Battaglia wrote in an e-mail that Gawker published on its website. “The New York website is being shut down, the city section in the paper is being cut significantly, and I am moving on.” The satirical paper closed its San Francisco and Los Angeles offices in 2009.
