From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday:

  • The National Association of Realtors reports on sales of existing homes for January.
  • Where are the nation’s governors? They’re headed to Washington for the National Governors Association’s Winter Meeting.
  • It’s the anniversary of The New Yorker. The magazine was first published on February 21, 1925
  • And on February 21, 1885 the Washington Monument was dedicated in the nation’s capital. There are 897 steps inside. (And an elevator, thank god.)
