NEW YORK CITY — A total of 34 inches of snow fell in Jackson Heights during this weekend's record-breaking blizzard, giving locals the back-breaking honor of recording more snowfall than any other tri-state town or neighbohood, officials said.
The storm, which was the second biggest in New York City history, hit Staten Island's Port Richmond with snowfall accumulation that ranked a close second: 31 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
Jamaica, Queens came in third at 30 inches at JFK Airport, where the snowfall wreaked havoc on flights.
Queens was the borough that got hit the hardest overall, and also took to social media to sound the alarm about having the most problems getting plows to dig them out.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday morning he wasn't happy with the many unplowed streets across the borough, and dispatched 850 plows Sunday afternoon as residents began to dig out from the storm.
While the National Weather Service, which records snowfall counts across the country, gets its data with the help of volunteers, members of the public and officials. But the official snowfall count for New York City has historically been, and remains, the Central Park measurement.
Snowfall there was previously recorded by the Central Park Zoo, but that responsibility recently shifted to the Central Park Conservancy, whose staffers were trained to take the levels with the help of "snow-measuring sabers," according to officials.
