Thankfully, we're not quite at the point in 2012 where we have to leave the 2011 roundups behind, so here's one more, from the folks at PropertyShark.

Take heart: the 12,177 distressed properties in NYC in 2011 was actually 34 percent lower than 2010's number and 46 percent lower than the peak seen in 2008.
