New York’s Crossword League has long been a way for the city’s residents to keep in touch with their city’s mysteries and crossword puzzle history.
The league has had its share of controversy, however, with several players and officials having been charged with child pornography and others suspended for a string of alleged offenses.
Now, according to CrosswordLeague.com, a website for professional crossword enthusiasts, one of the league’s top brass is in talks with the city over the league potentially relocating to another city.
“The league is working with the New Orleans Hornets to explore the possibility of relocating their league to another market,” CrosswordLeagues.com reports.
“League officials are hopeful that a deal can be struck that will allow the league to continue playing in the New England area.”
While the league has previously relocated to other cities, it has been in New York for nearly two decades now.
According to the New Yorker, Crossword Leagues was founded in 1972 and is headquartered in Greenwich Village.
