26. Last Year:Tornadoes Slam Brooklyn, Staten Island
Not only was the tornado the first ever in recorded history to touch down in Brooklyn, it's also was the first to hit a New York City borough since 1995, when a twister struck Staten Island.

Outside of those two, there have been only two other tornadoes to strike New York City. The first touched down in Queens in 1985 and the second in Staten Island in 1990.

Record-keeping of tornadoes began nationwide in 1950.

Pretty rare I'd say.
