Quality puzzles & Gifts

Our products have a distinctly literary and nostalgic feel, drawing inspiration from the clever wit of The New Yorker magazine, classic book art from Harry Potter, and collaborations with thriving independent artists like Loré Pemberton, Victo Ngai and more!

Our Story

Founded in 2007 by two college pals, New York Puzzle Company started with a simple idea of making a puzzle of the iconic NYC subway map. With only six puzzle designs in our line, we decided to make the plunge to exhibit at the NY Toy Fair and see what people thought of our designs.

Adam Silver


Few kids were as obsessed with puzzles as a child as co-founder Adam Silver. Choosing his first job working at a toy store restocking the puzzle shelf, Adam was hooked. He puzzled in his spare time, on vacations and now does it for a living!

Turning his passion into a career took some hard work. He started at Cornell University, majoring in both Economics and History and got his law degree from University of Michigan. Now he puts all those skills into use as the head of sales, strategy, product development and licensing for NYPC.



Always a designer and aspiring entrepreneur, Co-Founder Sarah Dickinson has been crafting things for as long as she can remember. Dabbling in architecture, interior design and accessories creation, she had collaborated with the MTA on earlier projects such as the Metro Card Bag.

Also a History major with a minor in Architecture from Cornell University, Sarah went on to get her Master's degree in Environmental Conservation Education from NYU. She is head of design, operations, and finance for NYPC. She is also the environmental ambassador and liaison with 1% for the Planet.
