This puzzle:

Rows: 21, Columns: 21, Words: 140, Blocks: 64 Missing: none – this is a pangram This is puzzle # 4 for Mr. Schneider. NYT links: Across Lite

JimH notes: The images can be seen here but since they are hard to read, I'll describe them. 23 Across is the letters "Quakerism adherents" arranged in a circle. 32 Across is "Approximately" arranged again in a circle. 105 Across is "Extension" in a wavy pattern. 117 Across is "Somers Islands formerly" shaped like a triangle. 4 Down is "Floor covering" in a circle. 16 Down is "Waltzing" in a box. 34 Down is "Pugilism" in a circle. 50 Down is "Place of business" in an oval. 58 Down is "Victoire" in an arch. 84 Down is "Castor Pollux" arranged in two peaks.

This is also the only NYT puzzle to include PENIS as an answer.
