It gets cold in New York, but not THIS cold!

A clock/thermometer display showing a temperature of negative 75 degrees.

You're not seeing things. This clock/thermometer is actually saying that the temperature is -75°. In other words, SEVENTY-FIVE DEGREES BELOW ZERO! I am assuming that this is in the Fahrenheit scale, because if it were Centigrade, it would be even colder! However, with the date and time provided above, the weather records clearly indicate that the actual temperature was nowhere near this otherwise record low for this or any date in New York City.
