You’re rushing to get up your Halloween decorations tonight so tomorrow you can carve the pumpkin and dress the kids. But, once you get them dressed up, you gotta take them out and parade them around. Have you thought about that? Do you know where you are taking them?
Deciding on a Halloween costume was so easy when they were young. They would enthusiastically agree with (almost) anything I chose. Now that they’re older, what is appropriate is a harder conversation. I’m not referring to anything too sexy or scary; I want originality and creativity.
High Line Halloween celebration! The
High Line will be transported to a spooky past, where haunted trains ruled and
the ghosts of hungry workers roamed the West Side. Trick-or-treat your way
through the park and enjoy an afternoon of art, music, ghosts and ghouls. Sneak
through a haunted train tunnel (if you dare!), take a photo with a giant “ghost
train” made by local school children, and construct your own larger-than-life
train cars out of materials.

High Line from West 14th Street to West 17th Street
On Friday, October 25, St. John The Divine Cathedral invites brave souls to its annual Halloween Extravaganza and Procession of the Ghouls.
After a screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), accompanied by live organ music, the Cathedral will be transformed by fantastical creatures of the night, created by Artist-in-Residence Ralph Lee and embodied by the Mettawee River Theatre Company—loping and scurrying down the Nave, leaving delightful fright in their wake.
Friday, October 25, 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm
Tickets are $20.
Here’s an idea…instead of spending your dollars on candy this Halloween, how about
donating to “Make Change for Children” so the Joint Council on International Children’s Services (JCICS) and its partners can
find more loving, adoptive homes for vulnerable, orphaned children
Joint Council is the only international non-profit dedicated to ensuring
that every child lives, grows and thrives in a safe, permanent and
loving family. Your donation helps Joint Council and its 258
international partners serve over 2 million children and families each
