Searching for NYT font

Greeting, Can somebody help me to find the font used for the New York Times Style Magazine? I need especially the "Style" word from this image, in a bigger size, but the exactly similar font would be the best.

Thanks

This blackletter with a Textura flavor is called "Fraktur Six" and was created by Matthew Carter in 2005, loosely based on The New York Times's nameplate. It is not available for licensing.
The retail font with the closest _S_ is perhaps Fette Gotisch which was designed by Friedrich Bauer in 1875 and is available in digital form from various foundries, including http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/fette-gotisch/

The letter _y_ is close to Agincourt http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/agincourt/
If Agincourt's _t_, _l_ and _e_ are not close enough you can find closer ones by digging through various fraktur fonts. A place to start http://typophile.com/node/117850
In any event, you will have to adjust the weights of all of the letters in _Style_ and make adjustments to get an exact match.
