Weather: Much cooler, with a more February-like high of 44 and some sun. Rain tomorrow.
Alternate-side parking: In effect until next Tuesday.
When a building with more than a thousand people loses heat and power for more than a week in the dead of winter, it’s a big story. When that building is a federal jail, it’s a huge story.
What happened: Last Friday, my colleague Annie Correal reported that inmates at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn were being held in freezing cells, in darkness, unable to contact their families or meet with their lawyers.
The story got national attention, as demonstrators massed, inmates pounded at the windows and lawmakers demanded action. Mayor Bill de Blasio sent blankets. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo called for a Department of Justice investigation. Protesters tried to enter the jail and were driven back with pepper spray.
On Sunday night, electricity and some heat were restored. By then, federal judges were seeking answers.
In a hearing Tuesday, held by Judge Analisa Torres, inmates described the freezing conditions and said problems predated the Jan. 27 electrical fire that jail officials initially said was the source of the problems.
Why it matters: The problems at the M.D.C. come amid a rethinking of criminal justice nationwide, against the backdrop of the Black Lives Matter movement and a groundswell of political activism among Democrats.
But Ms. Correal said the outrage over the jail came down to something more fundamental.
“It seemed unusually cruel to have inmates locked in cold cells without proper clothing and heat,” she said. “That’s the most basic human reason there was this much attention paid to this story.”
A defense lawyer named Patrick Brackley went into the jail on Sunday to meet with clients and said it was cold enough inside to see his breath.
“What’s that Dostoyevsky quote?” he said. “‘You can tell a civilization by the way it keeps its prisons.’”
What’s next: More oversight? One lawyer who testified at Judge Torres’s hearing said the court could appoint a special master to inspect the jail and issue reports to the judge.Best of The Times

The Times’s Andy Newman reports:
As trophy homes go, the 1940 mock Tudor at 85-15 Wareham Place in Jamaica Estates, Queens, is not particularly impressive.
It is devoid of fine architectural detail, unless you count the gold-trimmed Jacuzzi. Its grounds are modest. And with an asking price of .9 million, it’s going for more than double the price of comparable houses in the neighborhood.
It is, however, the only home currently on the market in which you could say to a dinner guest, “Would you like to go upstairs and see the room where President Donald J. Trump was likely conceived?”
The house, which Mr. Trump lived in until age 4, went up for sale Tuesday morning. The exclusive broker, Edward Hickey of Compass, said Tuesday afternoon that he had received several calls from brokers representing “overseas clients.”
It is being sold through closed bidding — email your best offer to firstname.lastname@example.org, and attach proof of funds of at least 10 percent of the asking price. Bids will be taken for at least two weeks.
The house has other perks. It comes with all the décor bestowed upon it when it was rented out as an Airbnb, including a life-size cutout of Mr. Trump looking imposingly presidential.
“I’ve got one of Melania in there too now,” Mr. Hickey said.
When I stayed at the house in 2017, the stove was broken and you had to jiggle some of the toilet handles to get them to stop flushing.
Mr. Hickey said the stove now works. “And the toilets looked fine.” He had not tried the handles.
It’s Wednesday — what would you do with Mr. Trump’s childhood home?Metropolitan Diary: Out of reach
I was at a local discount store. It was filled from floor to ceiling with everything from shampoo to mops to underwear.
I spotted the item I wanted on the topmost row of a hanging display. I looked around for one of those grabbing poles that could help me pull it down, but I didn’t see one. There weren’t any employees around either.
I was considering my options when a woman stepped up next to me and pointed to her shoulder. I was perplexed.
She put my hand on her shoulder and pointed to a ledge I could hoist myself up on.
“Are you sure?” I asked.
Balancing myself on her shoulder, I was able to reach up and grab the item.
“Thanks so much,” I said.
We both smiled and went on about our browsing.
