This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 70, Blocks: 32 Missing: {QXZ} This is puzzle # 60 for Mr. Silk. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

Many solvers complained about 44 Across claiming the "Dir. from Gramercy Park to Central Park" should be NNW not NNE. Indeed, many maps seem to show just that. As usual, the crossword turns out to be correct.

Manhattan maps often artificially "straighten out" the island to appear more aligned to true north. This maps shows the correct orientation. Gramercy Park is marked with a pushpin. Central Park is up and, yes, to the right.
