I have been here in NYC a few years and I can’t recall a warmer January day than this one, nor can I recall a warmer January than this one and it’s only a week old.
When I approached Jerry at the newstand on 8th St. and Lafayette today, he said that according to historical figures he’s heard, there has not been a January or winter like this since the 50s. I did a little bit of web research which revealed a bunch of great tidbits -like this was the first snowless December and November since 1877.
As Jerry and I spoke, another East Village resident arrived and stated that “all those years of coal burning are finally paying off.” It crossed my mind, too.
