As temperatures rocket, cities fight heat waves

NEW YORK — Outside her apartment, at the height of a midsummer heat wave in Harlem, Caroline Gwynn shared her tips for staying cool without air conditioning. Baggy clothes help, Gwynn said, as she and several neighbors lounged on the benches lining the wide, shaded sidewalk across the street from their apartment building. So does standing in front of the box fan in the window of her ground-floor apartment, where she had drawn the curtains to keep out the afternoon sun. "Last night, I couldn't breathe," Gwynn said. "The heat got to me. I'm all tired out." Heat waves may tire all of us out — and not in just New York City.
