The New Yorker Jigsaw Puzzle

Ah, I loved this puzzle!  And I was challenged by this puzzle.
Here’s the box with the photo:

It’s just a glorious artist rendering by Roxie Munroe of a crowd going
into Carnegie Hall–with the lights glowing, the snow falling,
wonderful.  It was the New Yorker cover for January 18, 1988.

I loved piecing the crowd with their bright cheerful coat colors, and the glowing
yellow lights were fun, too.  But, ooh, those arched windows above the sign
(Music Hall Founded by Andrew Carnegie)—-a complicated mindbending
mishmash of design.  But —somebody had to do it, and I did.

This Springbok puzzle was published in 2004, but is currently
unavailable.  Last fall Springbok advertised a few selected out
of print puzzles “from their vault” and we ordered this one.
Keep your eye out for another one to become available.

Oh? How’s the Dickens puzzle coming along?  More slowly, but steadily.
Boy,you can pick up almost any of the 1000 pieces and see exactly
where that little head, or foot or part of red flag will go—-great fun.

    Beautiful! Is this the one the squirrel helped on? Looks like fun and great colors.
    I did get an email notifying me of this new post, btw, so I guess I’m ‘in the system’ again!
