New York Times Cross­word Puz­zle

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - TRAVEL - BY DE­SIGN By Isaac Mizrahi and David J. Kahn / Edited by Will Shortz

To mark the 75th an­niver­sary of the New York Times cross­word, which de­buted in 1942, we are pub­lish­ing a series of puz­zles co-cre­ated by fa­mous peo­ple who solve the Times cross­word, work­ing to­gether with reg­u­lar Times puz­zle con­trib­u­tors. This col­lab­o­ra­tion is by the de­signer and TV host Isaac Mizrahi, to­gether with David J. Kahn, a re­tired con­sult­ing ac­tu­ary in New York City. This is David’s 172nd cross­word for The Times.
