St. Patrick's Day New York 2012: The Best Videos From The Lucky Day (VIDEOS)

St. Patrick's Day was beautiful in New York this year with warm weather and a diverse city calling itself Irish for a day.

Of course, as these 100 photos prove, St. Patrick's Day in New York also always plays host to its faire share of debauchery, tomfoolery, protests, politics and violence. And 2012 was no exception.

Videos from the lucky day are beginning to accumulate online and we've snatched a sampling of 6 for your viewing pleasure, below. Watch a lot of fighting and drunkeness, funny interviews, Occupying, and of course bunch of bagpipes.

Know of any videos we missed? Send 'em our way and we'll add.
