NYC has a much milder climate than people realize. Being on the ocean moderates its temperature, and thus, it's a lot warmer than Midwestern cities.

I can vouch for this. Michigan is in the teens for almost 2 months of he year, but New York rarely dips below 28. And it was in the 90s for most of July this year.

Also, I lived near Chicago for seven years, and it snows far more often there -- not to mention, it's almost always at least 10 degress colder on any given day and frequently more than that.

It's not warmer in the spring and summer though. The midwest can have epic heatwaves while the Northeast rarely goes above 100. It's a once every several years occurrence. For example before last year we hadn't reached 100 in 9 years in NYC.

This is false. The average low in NYC is in the mid to upper 20's for most of the winter from the latter half of December straight through the end of February.

Just this past January we had 7 days with lows in the teens and we bottomed out at 6 degrees on the 24th.

And only 14 days got over 90 in July, with 5 of those being either 90 or 91. Only 2 days went above 90 in August.This is my field of expertise and I also live here so I am a local climate expert.

Chicago averages only 10 inches more a year than NYC does. There might be snow on the ground for longer durations there but when it comes to the big storms department the Northeast beats any other location for frequency of large snowstorms. They just don't have the juice from the Gulf Stream in the interior of the continent to fuel as many large storms as we can get here on the coast.

For example, Barrow Alaska, which sits on the Arctic Ocean, receives about the same amount of snow as Chicago does. They lack the moisture up there to rack big winter snow totals and can only match places like Chicago, despite their much much colder climate on the North Slope.

Where are hearing noises that cladding is already going up. At 5 pm I will hop on a subway and run down there to see. If it is a false alarm I beat up Dino :-)

No problem.

The only place where there could be cladding that I couldn't see from ground level is on the 58th street side above the entrance which blocks a direct view of 5 or 6 stories from the street. Could be cladding there but I doubt it.

I am sure it will be soon though.
