By now, all New Yorkers have realized that it is hot. But many may not know that the current heatwave — which has featured temperatures of 90 degrees or above for seven straight, hellish days — is the longest in over a decade.

Luckily, thunderstorms are expected on Saturday night, which means the city should cool down to the 80s on Sunday, and we'll all have to find something new to complain about.
