If you enjoy modern crossword puzzles as they should be, avoid this one. I wish I had. Please don't take this as a condemnation of the NYT crosswords in general.
Without spoiling the answers for anyone, I'll just say that in cases where a cell in the puzzle has something unusual going on in it, the solution section often doesn't indicate this at all. Some of the puzzles do have this extra info, and some puzzles even have extra info written below the solution, explaining what's going on in the solution. The solution to 43 is numbered as 44, and vice versa; it seems to have been put together in a rush.
I love the NYT puzzles, and Will Shortz is terrific, but this is a bit of a disappointment.
We now do the puzzles sparingly because we don't want to run out -- and there are only 101 of them.
