Instead of starting two threads I am going to stick two ID's in one thread. Do any of you kind people know the following.

A: The boards mag typeface.

and
B: This semi slab serif-ed type i saw in NYC.

As always thanks in advance.

I think B is an amputated slab serif, but the most similar font out of the box looks like Cape Arcona's Cape Rock. Something like Stymie Extra Bold with serif amputation (ouch!) might look similar to ESSEX.

Boards looks pretty close to Block Gothic Extra Condensed from Red Rooster.

‘boards’ could be Akzidenz Grotesk Medium Condensed.

Thanks guys. Ak Grotesk looks like the hit to me on Boards.
