New York Times October 14 2021 Crossword Answers

By | October 14, 2021

The Times crossword puzzle is a British daily cryptic crossword popularised by its inclusion in the London newspaper The Times and inspired by similarly themed puzzles published in The New York Tribune since 1925. It is also one of the most widely distributed crosswords globally today.

  • The crossword-puzzle fad that followed eventually led to the creation of many similar puzzles in other newspapers, including some with distinctly different rules from the “New York Times”.

The puzzle required entrants not only to fill in standard synonym squares but also to answer clues which required them to solve a second level.
