This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 16 Words: 73, Blocks: 36 Missing: {X} Spans: 5, (1 triple stack) This is puzzle # 6 for Mr. Bowman. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

I recently teased Martin Ashwood-Smith that one way to avoid overused words in his stacks of 15s would be to stack 16s instead. Derek Bowman beat him to the punch. This is the first time 16s have been stacked in any NYT crossword.
