    it's amazing you can be ten degrees colder than Central Park because of their heat island effect...I was 28 this morning near the water...

    so far NYC has 65 days with a minimum temperature 32 or lower...last year had 69 with two in April...this week the predicted lows in the city are near freezing Sunday to Wed. mornings...if that happens this year will tie last year...the most in recent years is 93 in 2014-15...2015-16 and 2016-17 had less than 50 such days...37 is the lowest total on record set in 2011-12...before the 1950's there were many years with at least 100 days with a minimum 32 or lower...

    the first 100 degree day I remember was in 1957...1955 had a few but I was to young to remember...NYC saw 100 degree days in 1949, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1957...1966 is my favorite hot summer...I was 17 and it was a very good year weather wise...maybe if there is a brush fire around the Central Park observation plot you might get one there...
