Jan. 30, 1936: An all-too-familiar story: A cold wave in New York abated somewhat when temperatures climbed to 22 degrees, the warmest it had been in eight days. Long before the phrase “polar vortex” had entered common parlance, The Times reported that though “yesterday’s temperatures were higher than on the preceding seven days, they never went above the freezing point and were of no help to the 30,591 men who continued to try to clear the corrugated crust of ice from the streets,” like these men on Madison Avenue at 60th Street.
