One New York man, John de Guzmán, documented 2011 in photographs, like many of us, and has now compiled it all into a 4 minute and 53 second video. It includes the Mermaid Parade, some Open House NY spots, some Hurricane Irene action, the Woolworth Building, Zuccotti Park, and plenty of others. It's a bit less intimate than something like the amazing collection of Polaroids taken by the late Jamie Livingston, which you can revisit here, and sadly, it's soundtracked to 2009's New York City anthem, Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind"—but at least he didn't go with "Liberty Walk."
