Puzzle pairs well with a bottle of 10 yr old Talisker and a dark rainy night. A classic American masterpiece is met with by a masterpiece of a puzzle. I don't usually go in for rectangular-ish pieces, as they can feel too simple, but the clean lines and intricate "banister" knob connectors themed-well to the architecture of the painting. The true themes of this painting - existential angst of lonely citizens, the Ubuntu of late-night urban life - were a bit cast aside for a more playful film noir theme for the whimsies, which were admittedly enjoyable and and had me re-watching the Bogart the next night. Not sure how long it took exactly, I stayed up too late obsessively finishing it, but perhaps not at my most sharp.
