To say that the ole Pagan holiday is big up here is an understatement. Walk around the Upper East Side and I see that the town homes are big on decorating up here as well. Plans for the weekend right now are undecided except for a celebratory dinner at Red Rooster in Harlem and some drinks with friends. The West Village’s Halloween parade is always a prime destination here but considering it is Saturday night, the time change and I need good ju-ju…..I think multiple drinks will take its place. I will report later but here is what is going on in the Upper East Side.
Nope this isn’t a decoration, this is someone’s gargoyle looking down on 75th street
Considering that Pumpkins are 99 cents a pound up here we opted to drink beer instead of getting a jack-o-lantern
As seen on 76th street
This little joker scares the crap out of people texting and walking past their townhome
This one takes the cake, this is like the neighbor who lived in South Bluffs and did it up for Christmas!
Like I said, they go all out!
I can see my favorite Hotel in Belize doing something like this
I met the owner and asked if anyone ‘borrows’ the heads, he said that he used to have a problem but his neighbors keep an eye on his decorations.
Not even the street trees are safe.
Here is another decoration on 73rd by my favorite cigar place
Even my favorite Bar on 63rd street gets into the decoration
As seen on 68th
On my walk home from the subway
Got to love their decorating
Here is another one I see on the way home
Pictures from last year’s Village Halloween Parade
We will make it down there one of these years
I don’t doubt that my former upstairs neighbors will be doing it up big this weekend.
