I like to do a photo review every year just because it helps me remember what the hell exactly happened. But I just did one recently of Hurricane Sandy blackout photos and that was pretty much the pivotal event for many of us in the city.
I uploaded more than 4,500 photos to Flickr this year, but Tumblr’s photosets only allow 10 photos. So here are 10 photos that sum up the year for me in New York (basically, lots of precipitation).
(Last year’s photo review here)
We actually had two "super storms" this year. Before Sandy, there was this big rainstorm in July that didn't really live up to being "super"
Watching parades isn't that fun for me. But sneaking in behind them is worth it (helps if you're Asian for this one).
Finally saw the 9/11 memorial. Lived up to the hype.
Bill Cunningham at the Giants Super Bowl Parade was definitely my celebrity-sighting of the year
NY Fashion Week casting call in SoHo
I don't recommend going to the Top of the Rock on a foggy night unless it's free, but at least it's peaceful
This guy is doing what I like to do most weekend afternoons.
We did have one solid snow this year, poorly timed right after Sandy
Got to walk atop the rails and wild grass at the High Line's upcoming final section.
I'll never take street lights or meat for granted after Sandy
