Observations on moving my family across the Atlantic

At last, it’s Halloween

Leave a comment

I say this because it feels like the run up to today has been going on forever. I knew Americans loved Halloween, but in New York it’s crazy. Houses are covered in ghoulish decorations; shops are dripping with pumpkins and other pumpkin related paraphernalia and if I see another Halloween related food stuff, I’ll scream! I have never seen anything like it.

In honour of this madness, I have been collecting photos of Halloween decorations from when I’ve been out and about in the last couple of weeks. Happy Halloween!

If this isn't enough to catch your attention, get closer to the door and find the notice telling you this property has been condemned!

A little something from Dean and Deluca that dyes your teeth black. They wouldn't let me photograph the others directly behind this one I bought for E last week.

The most impressive of the lot, this is the front of a house on 72nd Street.

And here are the front steps of the same house. What you can't see is the rocking mad lady at the top of the stairs.

And the side of the house. This place is nuts and attracting a lot of interest from passers by.
