(NEW YORK) Welcome back to the New York City Daily Roundup! It is Tuesday, Oct. 5. For local sports fans, all eyes are on the New York Yankees today as they return to the Major League Baseball postseason in an American League Wild Card matchup against the Boston Red Sox. This is what dreams are made of.

Before diving into that, however, the local weather will peak at 68 degrees today, and it is certainly time to bundle up as the summer heat is behind us.

In the city that never sleeps, there is always something going on, and it is our duty at the NYC Daily Roundup to make sure you're in the loop. Here are the top local news stories for Tuesday:

1.) Yankees vs Red Sox in highly anticipated AL Wild Card game

While the game is not taking place on Broadway, it is a must-see spectacle (yes, even for Mets fans). The Yankees battled through their various challenges such as a shaky bullpen, questionable defensive lineups and numerous injuries but reached the postseason in 2021. As fate would have it, they will face their rivals, the Boston Red Sox, at 8 p.m. on ESPN.

The Yankees will send ace pitcher Gerrit Cole to the mound as they look to move past the Red Sox and onto the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Divisional Series. Unlike that potential series, there are only nine innings to play to decide whether they will keep their World Series hopes alive or if they will head to the drawing board for the 2022 season.

2.) Central Park Conservancy Film Festival begins Tuesday

The annual film festival at Central Park continues on Tuesday in its 18th edition. The festival will feature documentaries, including National Geographic's "The Rescue."

The festival was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Attendees are required to preregister and proof of vaccination is mandatory. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and screenings will run through Friday.

3.) NYC Sanitation Department begins winter preparations

Better to be prepared than not. The New York City Sanitation Department is preparing early, as autumn just kicked off. The department opened registration for any applicants looking to be a part of the Emergency Snow Laborer team for the 2021-22 winter season. Employees can earn $15 an hour to start and $22.50 an hour after 40 hours are worked in a week, according to the department.

“Big winter storms are commonplace in New York City,” said Commissioner Edward Grayson. “When Mother Nature starts bringing heavy snow to the City,  our Sanitation Workers are working 12-hour shifts to keep the streets clear, and we turn to Snow Laborers to help keep the City moving by tackling bus stops, crosswalks and step streets.”
