New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio started the third day of his administration with a predawn conference call, during which it was decided to close public schools after a major storm walloped the city with up to 6 inches of snow. "I had a great night; it was not the most sleep-filled night," he told reporters Friday morning during what's seen as the first challenge to a new mayor pushing a progressive agenda that promises to serve all of the city's 8 million residents. "I must say I have never done a 4 a.m. conference call in my life."
