The photometry is measured from Hubble Space Telescope images through the F336W, F555W, and F814W broadband filters. Color- magnitude diagrams of the stars in NGC 604 show a main sequence detected down to an M_F555W,0 of -1 (nearly 6M). In addition, there are luminous stars that are probably blue and red supergiants. Based on the previously known presence of Wolf-Rayet stars, we take the age of the cluster to be 3-5Myr. We measure an initial mass function for intermediate-mass stars (6.5-18M) that has a slope of -1.6±0.7. This slope is, within the uncertainties, similar to those found for OB associations in the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds. The density of the luminous stars in NGC 604 is also comparable to that of OB associations in those galaxies even though the total number of stars is greater in NGC 604. A few subclamps have densities that are higher by as much as a factor of 10. A comparison with R136 in the LMC emphasizes that the formation of a large number of massive stars does not necessarily entail a high concentration of those stars.
