It’s Thursday. Have you done the same type of job for 40 years? My colleagues at The Times Magazine want to hear from you.
Weather: Brace yourself. There’s a flash flood watch as well as a wind advisory, with gusts up to 50 miles an hour, heavy downpours likely this afternoon and a high of 58.
More settled but chilly weather for Friday and the weekend.
Alternate-side parking: in effect till Feb. 4.
Yesterday morning, it was a water main break. Often, it’s the century-old signal technology. Sometimes, it’s a cute little kitten.
There are plenty of reasons things do not go exactly according to plan when it comes to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
You can now add to that list Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (if you haven’t already).
This morning, the M.T.A. board is scheduled to vote on whether to increase subway and bus fares. Currently, fares are .75.
For months, the M.T.A. has considered two increase plans. The first would keep base fares at .75 but eliminate discounts for buying in bulk. The second option would increase bulk discounts but raise the base fare to .
Here’s the catch: Even if fares go up, the M.T.A. has said there is no guarantee it will prevent service cuts.
Then on Tuesday, a nearly 6-foot monkey wrench landed in the M.T.A.’s machinery.
Mr. Cuomo told my colleague Emma Fitzsimmons he does not believe the M.T.A. needs to raise fares at all. “I have no faith in what they say,” he said of the agency.
Not even to prevent service cuts?
“No. Tighten your belt. Make the place run better,” Mr. Cuomo replied.
And with that, Mr. Cuomo continued what one website called his “reign of terror on the M.T.A.”
They plan, he disrupts. Remember the L train shutdown?
So why is Mr. Cuomo doing all of this?
One obvious answer: It’s popular. Stop a shutdown, prevent a fare increase, bask in glory.
More substantively, it is part of the governor’s carefully executed strategy to, as Emma wrote, “humiliate” the M.T.A. into (somehow) improving.

Financial aid for undocumented students in New York State: The Legislature passed a bill yesterday. The governor says he will sign it.

Events are subject to change, so double-check before heading out. For more events, see the going-out guides from The Times’s culture pages.And finally: Last days for iconic TV shows about life in the city
Every generation has its New York City television show.
For some who grew up on the 1990s and early 2000s, it was shows like “Seinfeld” and “Friends.”
Today, the shows are “Broad City” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
Both are close to ending.
The fifth and final season of “Broad City” begins today. The fourth and final season of “Kimmy Schmidt” will be released on Friday on Netflix.
To understand how profoundly delightful, and insightful, these shows are, check out what The Times television critic James Poniewozik wrote about them.
The New York in “Broad City,” he wrote, “is a frenemy that charms you and grosses you out, embraces you and picks your pocket, shows you a good time and tries to break your foot.”
“Kimmy Schmidt,” Mr. Poniewozik wrote, is “one of TV’s sharpest satires of a changing city” and is “a kind of anti-fantasy fantasy of New York, celebrating the city’s dirt in an era in which even ‘Sesame Street’ has gotten an expensive face-lift.”
This is a more realistic, diverse and perceptive view of the city than viewers saw in “Seinfeld” and “Friends.”
The finales of those shows were major cultural events.
The last episode of “Seinfeld,” in 1998, played on a giant screen in Times Square.
When the last episode of “Friends” aired in 2004, fans watched on big screens by the Hudson River Park, and even places like the sports-themed 40/40 club adjusted their television sets so patrons could watch.
What will you do for the finales of “Broad City” and “Kimmy Schmidt?”Metropolitan Diary: They all offered
On June 13, 2018, eight months pregnant with my first child, I rode the subway four times.
On my way to work at 9:45 a.m., a man on an uptown R closed the mystery novel he was reading and stood up.
“Please take my seat,” he said.
A woman with damp hair made eye contact with me.
“Seat?” she mouthed.
A man with enormous headphones and enormous sweatpants widened his eyes as if to say, “I see you” and began to stand.
I thanked each of them, but declined their offers. I was only going three stops.
There was more of the same on my way to and from a doctor’s appointment later that afternoon: eye contact and gestures from a teenage girl in a school uniform, two men in suits, an older man with a robust mustache and a woman with extravagant nails playing a casino game on her phone.
I declined each offer again. It was just two stops each way.
At 6:45 p.m., I waited on a crowded platform at the 49th Street station, ignoring the humidity and the smells of the subway.
A downtown W arrived and the doors opened. As I shuffled onto the train, I felt a hand on my elbow. A woman in a skirt suit with bags on her lap and earbuds in smiled at me and stood up.
I nodded in appreciation. I was ready to sit.
