Are you getting the message “Unable to locate New York 18 font” when running a Mac application or game such as Oregon Trail 5? Are you looking for a way to download the New York 18 font? The problem is that the New York 18 font went the way of the Mac Classic OS environment, ending with OS 9, and which stopped being included with any Mac OS install after OS X 10.4. This can be very frustrating if you are trying to run an application which requires that darned New York 18 font! But fear not, because the fix is pretty easy.
In fact, the good news is that the New York 18 font may be as close as your Mac hard drive; and if it’s not, we’ll tell you where to download the New York 18 font.
The first thing to do is to determine what version of OS X you are running. You do that by clicking on the little Apple logo at the far upper right-hand corner of your screen on your Mac. Then click on “About This Mac”, which will tell you, among other things, what version of the Mac software you are running.

If you are running 10.4 or lower, you’re in luck! You should find the font “suitcase” (kind of like a folder) for New York right in the system folder under HardDrive > System > Library > Fonts.
In fact, if you are running 10.4 or lower, it’s likely you won’t even run into the error “Unable to Locate New York 18 font”.
But if you’re running anything higher than 10.4, meaning that you no longer have the full Classic support, then you may well run into this error.
In this case you have a couple of choices.
You can simply ask anyone you know who is still running a version of 10.4 or lower to look on their hard drive, in their fonts folder (or folders, depending on whether their system is set up to have one fonts folder, or a separate fonts folder for Classic) for the “New York” suitcase, and have them copy it to a thumb drive or floppy, and give it to you to copy over to your font directory.
Or, you can download New York 18 font here.
