Neil Patrick Harris Crossword in NY Times

Postby Matthew Field » August 24th, 2017, 9:08 am

Ingrid Spangler, a photographer who was a dear friend of my late buddy Prof. Bobby Baxter, writes to tell me that there's a crossword puzzle by Neil Patrick Harris in today's (Aug 24) New York Times. Has anyone seen it?

I wouldn't look at this site: http://rexwordpuzzle.blogspot.com/
until after you have done the puzzle yourself (to avoid spoilers)

However, the referenced site does contain a bit of a commentary on NPH & Steinberg's work, including noting an extremely cool feature Re: 58 Across.
