The New York Times Crossword Challenge description
The daily crossword in The New York Times is considered by many to be the veritable pinnacle of puzzle-play, a mountain to be climbed every day with enthusiasm, frustration or a combination of the two. The NYT crosswords attract passionate fans including Bill Clinton, Jon Stewart, Ken Burns and the Indigo Girls as a daily must-do, boosting mental acumen, stretching vocabularies and a crossing of cerebral swords with the anonymous puzzle masters.
