The Post's circulation in metro New York is about half a million a day. I believe it slightly trails the Daily News, but it far outsells the Times in the city. In my time there, I found the Post's tone to be shrill and its story selection to lean to the sensational, but the actual content of its reporting was relatively solid. They're not going to tell you much about the elections in Egypt and Congo, but they will tell you a fair amount about NYC-based news -- like unusual or noteworthy lease deals at MTA facilities.
