* BookBurning: Non-political variant of this trope. A a few survivors battling the cold hunker down in a massive library. They resort to burning books, but the head librarian refuses to let a Bible be thrown in the mix, not because he's religious, but said Bible was the first book of the library. He also gets into an argument over whether to burn a book by Machiavelli; the argument ends when someone else points out they've got a whole row of books on tax law they can burn instead.

* InfantImmortality: To say nothing of the millions, possibly billions of people who die elsewhere in the world (which would include men, women, and children), the New York library has a number of families with kids...who all die because they decide to follow the one policeman out ''into subzero temperatures'' to look for rescue instead of staying in the library.

** On a smaller scale, Sam tries to warn the NYPD officer against leaving the relative safety of the library. While Sam is not a true expert, he still knows more than the average person about this sort of thing due to learning about it from his father. Naturally, Sam and the handful of people who listen to him and stay behind at the library survive while the cop and the much larger group who leave with him end up all freezing to death in the storm.

** Predictably, the closed doors don't really help much. They don't actually stop the ice from getting in, only managing to delay it for about a minute at the most before the door themselves freeze over.

Roland Emmerich confided that the Statue of Liberty would be turned over by the force of the massive amount of water flowing around it but said he wanted to create a symbol of American values that stood up to the forces.
