Weather: Sunny skies. The temperatures will get into the mid-40s, but the windchill may have you reaching for a scarf.
Alternate-side parking: In effect until March 21 (Purim).
The real estate mogul Harry Macklowe erected 42-foot-tall photographs of himself and his new wife on a Park Avenue building last week for the whole world — including his ex-wife, who lives nearby — to see.
It was the latest example of how New York has been uniquely shaped by the idiosyncrasies of the superrich.
Sometimes the results, like vanity addresses on buildings, are seemingly harmless. Other times, they have changed how New York looks and feels.
Here are a few other instances:
Stephen A. Schwarzman’s library
In 2008, the Wall Street financier Stephen A. Schwarzman donated 0 million to the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue, resulting in his name’s being inscribed on the building five times. Soon it will be six.
Robert Moses’ two-mile detour
The Northern State Parkway on Long Island bypasses the neighborhood of Wheatley Hills because, according to the historian Robert Caro, very rich residents persuaded the master builder Robert Moses to redesign his roadway plans.
Barry Diller’s park
Initially, the plan for a new park on the West Side of Manhattan was modest, and the billionaire Barry Diller was tapped to help fund it. “He embraced the notion, but brought in his own experts and commissioned a space age structure,” The New York Times reported in 2017.
Before Mr. Diller got involved, the park was projected to cost million; its budget has since ballooned to 0 million.
Jeff Bezos’ planned helipad
When Amazon was looking to open a major campus, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio lured it with nearly billion in tax incentives and waterfront property in Long Island City. “They even agreed to allow a helipad for Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive,” The Times’s J. David Goodman reported last year. (Could you imagine him taking the 7 train?)
The company eventually backed out of the whole deal because of local opposition.
Donald J. Trump’s properties
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Donald J. Trump, whose eponymous developments proliferated throughout New York City for decades before he became president. Even Wollman Rink in Central Park has the Trump name on it.
Since the 2016 election, there has been a push to strip his name from some buildings and even a state park.

A glittering goodbye to Hector Xtravaganza. New Yorkers gathered to memorialize the life of the L.G.B.T. icon.
Black lawmakers in New York say they’ll block marijuana legalization unless their communities benefit from what could be a billion industry.
State lawmakers are backing a pied-à-terre tax on multimillion-dollar second homes in New York. They say it will help fund the city’s ailing subway system.
A shipping manifest said the container held dried fruit. Inside was 3,200 pounds of cocaine.

And finally: 200 years of bicycling
It’s hard to overstate the revolutionary impact that bicycles have had on mankind.
Paved roads were made for cyclists, not drivers, one author has argued.
The Times’s Natalie Angier wrote, “Bicycles also gave birth to our national highway system.” And Ms. Angier also noted that suffragist Susan B. Anthony said, “I think it has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world.”
There are, of course, more recent examples of the impact of bicycles.
In 2008, an East Harlem resident, Dulcie Canton, had not just one but half a dozen jobs: dog-walking, cat-sitting, fine-arts modeling, coffee shop barista, just to name a few. And she biked to each of them. Why? “I was struggling to make MetroCard money,” she said in a recent interview.
“I thought of cycling as a way to save money, going to my gigs,” Ms. Canton said. Besides, she added, “mass transit is crazy.”
So, she hopped on her bike and rode. Later, Ms. Canton connected with other female cyclists of color through groups like Black Girls Do Bike and Brown Bike Girl. “I felt like I found my family,” she said.
Ms. Canton now works as the Brooklyn organizer for Transportation Alternatives, an advocacy group that promotes bicycle and pedestrian-friendly policies.
The “first human-powered two-wheeled machines,” debuted in New York in 1819, according to a news release from the Museum of the City of New York. Those machines did not have pedals, and riders mainly coasted. Those machines were called velocipedes.
Bicycles have evolved a lot since then.
On Thursday, the museum will open the exhibit “Cycling in the City: A 200-Year History.” It will explore the history and cultures of cycling, as well as the machines themselves. The exhibit includes 150 objects, 14 bicycles and three stationary bicycles.
The exhibit runs (or rides!) through Oct. 6.
It’s Tuesday — make your own path.
Metropolitan Diary: Smoothie showdown
I was stepping up to order at Planet Smoothie in Penn Station when a man who had just gotten a smoothie stomped back to the counter.
“What’s in this?” he said.
The cashier looked nonplused.
“Which one did you order, again?” he said.
The man waved at the board on the wall. The cashier continued to have a nervous look on his face.
“It looks like strawberries, blueberries, nonfat yogurt,” he said.
“I can read,” the man said. “But it doesn’t taste like it.”
The people waiting behind me began to shuffle impatiently. The cashier shrugged and shifted his feet. Two other employees moved in closer. I started contemplating whether a smoothie was worth waiting out this scene for.
“I can make you another one if you like?” the cashier said.
There was a pause.
“Nope, that’s all right, it’s good, ” the man said. “I like it, and I was just hoping for the recipe to make it at home.”
