Central Park Hits Record 102 Degrees


We just hit a record 102 degrees in Central Park, which is wayyyy better than the measly 101 degrees we achieved on July 22 of 1957, you guys. Everyone, pat yourself on the sweaty back! It’s thanks to all of us that this could even be possible. Also! With humidity, the heat is 116 degrees, really. It’s hotter in Newark (104 degrees) but who cares. We’re all winners!
