They have been keeping weather temperature records in Central Park in New York City since 1872. Since that year there have a total of 58 days when the temperature in Central Park in New York City was below zero.

The all-time coldest day in New York City history occurred on February 9, 1934, when the temperature dipped to -15 degrees. A very cold day to be sure, but it can get a lot colder than that in most parts of New York State.

The coldest day ever in New York State was -52 degrees, which occurred on February 18, 1979 in Old Forge, New York. I've been to Old Forge countless times as my family has many relatives up in that neck of the woods of upstate New York. Winters in that area of the Adirondack foothills can be brutally bad.
