In its gossip column "Gatecrasher," the Daily News reported that Klein and Kennedy appeared at an event recently, and told the story.
Klein said he did and the boy asked for one on his birthday, Jan. 19.
Klein said he would. The boy attended private school, but Klein said he knew that a public school snow day often meant the day off for private schools too.
Several years later, Klein had still not called a snow day for the child. But one day when it was "really snowing bad," Klein said Kennedy Schlossberg called him and said, "It's not [Jack's] birthday, but he's got a paper due tomorrow. A snow day would be awfully rich right now."
Klein added that one of the four snow days he declared during his time as chancellor was that day.
