Unlike 2010, there were no sexy bankers, tourist lanes, or gubernatorial races dominating our headlines this year. But there were natural disasters (Hurricane Irene) and global protest movements (Occupy Wall Street), strange political scandals (Weinergate, Deputy Mayor Goldsmith), strange sex scandals (parlez-vous DSK?), police corruption (the ticket-fixing saga), a long-awaited step forward (gay marriage), and the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. Revisit the year with this look back.
