As we close out 2011, the New York Times reports that Harlem was one of the 75 things New Yorkers talked about in 2011.
The top 10 were:
1. The G.O.P. debates. The best reality TV show not on Bravo.
2. The best moment of the debates: “Oops.”
3. The second-best moment of the debates: Ron Paul’s errant eyebrow.
4. Regis Philbin calls it quits after 28 years.
5. Kim Kardashian calls it quits after 72 days.
7. Kate Middleton’s wedding dress (by Sarah Burton): Grace Kelly reborn.
8. Princess Beatrice’s fascinator (by Philip Treacy). Laugh if you will, but it raised $131,000 for charity.
9. Pippa Middleton’s derrière (by nature). The backside that launched a thousand paparazzi shots.
10. The D.S.K. whiplash. He’s guilty! No, he’s innocent! Hey, maybe he’s guilty after all.
