Puzzle#20 Su-do-kode I: Tounge in Cheek

The number/logic puzzle Sudokuhas become phenomenally popular in the last five years or so in the United States.  Sudoku puzzles often appear alongside the venerable crossword puzzle in many daily news papers, and books of Sudoku puzzles can be found just about anywhere.  I would wager that if you ride the subway home from work like I do, you will find someone doing a Sudoku puzzle.  I have always liked Sudoku puzzles, but being more of a word guy, and never being able to leave things well enough alone in the first place, I have come up with a twist on the traditional Sudoku.  I call this new puzzle So-du-kode.  I have replaced the numbers 1 through 9 with nine letters.  You still solve the puzzle as you would a normal Sudoku puzzle, but in this case no letter is allowed to repeat where numbers are not allowed to repeat in the traditional puzzle.  If you solve the puzzle correctly, you will find something to do with New York City spelled out on one of the rows or columns in the puzzle.

The first person to email the solution to my brand spankin’ new gmail address:

puzzlingnyc <at> gmail <dot> com  Sorry for no direct link, but I would like to avoid the first email to this account being a Viagra ad.

Right!  The first person to email the solution to the above address will receive a prize that has something to do with said answer.

THAT’S RIGHT!  A PRIZE PEOPLE! 

So please email the nine letter solution and tell me which row or column the answer is located in.  Use row one for the top row and go down and use one for the left-most column and go right.

Happy Puzzling!
