After reading your post, I searched for information about this in the "New York Times." On 31 December 1983, it printed an article


explaining that the rain gauge at Belvedere Castle was being investigated because the precipitation measurements there were much higher than those at surrounding weather stations. When I informed the meteorologist Charles J. Fisk about this, he investigated the record. He learned that in 1984, the Eastern Region Office of the National Weather Service invalidated the daily precipitation totals in Central Park for all of 1983. Consequently, he is now also reporting that 2011 is the wettest year on record on his website.
