Weather: Coldest day in about a month — wind chills in the teens and 20s, a high of 34 and a vanishing sun. Then rain tonight as the mercury climbs back toward 50.
Alternate-side parking: in effect till Jan. 21.
The federal government shutdown is in its third week with no end in sight.
But New Yorkers can be forgiven for not noticing. Trains are still running; streetlights are working; and Pat Kiernan still reads the papers to you in the morning.
Still, there are some very real consequences here.
Historic sites like the African Burial Ground and Grant’s Tomb are closed. Gateway National Recreation Area, a national park with locations in Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and New Jersey, is open, but with no visitor services. And if you’re itching for a piece of Hamilton history, try the “Hamilton” lottery, because his home in Upper Manhattan is closed.
Gerald Quaye, an air traffic controller at Kennedy Airport, is not getting paid but still reports to work. If the shutdown extends past this week, Mr. Quaye said he is unsure how he will pay his mortgage. “I’ve never been late and I’ve never defaulted,” he said on Friday, “and hopefully, it doesn’t get to that point.”
Other closed historical sites: Federal Hall, Saint Paul’s Church, Eleanor Roosevelt’s home, Franklin Roosevelt house, the Vanderbilt Mansion and Women’s Rights National Historical Park, among others.
Closed museums: National Museum of the American Indian Heye Center and Cooper Hewitt.
Open, but without visitor services: Appalachian Trail, Sagamore Hill, and the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River. Enjoy those restrooms.
Open, because of state funding: Ellis Island (where Governor Cuomo had his inauguration) and the Statue of Liberty.
Online snafus: Since the national zoos are closed, that means no giant panda cam, no lion cam, no elephant cam and no naked mole-rat cam.Best of The Times
Tales from the witness stand: When the heir apparent to the Sinaloa cartel wanted out, he got help from an unlikely figure: the crime lord known as El Chapo.
A firefighter dies: He fell into the gap between lanes of a bridge on the Belt Parkway and plunged 50 feet.
After 235 years, women are welcome: For the first time, the New York chapter of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick invited women to their pre-parade dinner. (An earlier version of this item mistakenly said 250 years, not 235.)
Slow start: Only a fraction of New Yorkers eligible for half-price MetroCards can access them right now.

Mayor Bill de Blasio appeared in an episode of “The Simpsons” last night. In it, Grandpa Simpson comes to New York City and, naturally, ends up on Mr. de Blasio’s shoulders.
Why the mayor agreed to appear on the show, which airs on Fox, is a matter he addressed in an interview with my colleague J. David Goodman, excerpted below.
What resonates with you about the show’s vision?
I love “The Simpsons” because it’s subversive. It’s incredibly funny and constantly smart and insightful about this country.
It totally parodies what’s wrong with the political system and what’s wrong with many politicians. … There’s a rejection of a lot of status quo in there that I appreciate. … The portrayal of nuclear power in “The Simpsons” literally was one of the most important elements of changing America’s trajectory on nuclear power.
What’s your favorite episode?
The episode where Sideshow Bob runs for mayor is sort of the ultimate critique — obviously that one is all about the Willie Horton ad and the 1988 presidential election — and it lays bare so much hypocrisy in one episode. That’s probably my all-time favorite.
By going on the show, do you worry about appearing to support Fox, given your longstanding critique of Fox News?
No. I think on the news side that Rupert Murdoch has very systematically worked to move America rightward and to create a lot of division. I’ve said quite openly that I don’t think there would be a Donald Trump as president without Rupert Murdoch.
But on the entertainment side, I have to acknowledge they have done some extraordinary work that doesn’t seem to conform with the ideology of the news side.
You know the feeling you get on a Friday after work ends? I had that feeling when I got on a Metro North train headed home after a long week.
I picked the middle seat in a three-seat row. Just before the train pulled out, a man sat down next to me and gave me a mean look.
“You know,” he said, “you shouldn’t be sitting in the middle seat.”
The implication was that I should have taken the window seat to allow more room for others.
The comment made me angry, and I was about to respond to his rudeness but it was Friday. And I had to admit that he had a point. So I moved over to the window seat and offered him a handshake and an apology.
He scowled as he shook my hand.
After 45 minutes of reading and listening to music, I arrived at my station. As I got up to leave, the man who had chided me offered me his hand.
“I’m sorry,” he said. “That was my fault. You did nothing wrong.”
