When the kids get tired of trick or treating in their building, these street parties are the way to go.

Trick or Treating
West 69th Street
West 69th between Broadway and Central Park West always has a very big crowd for its block party, though it can get very crowded. The decorations are always awesome!
West 87th Street
The block between West End and Riverside tends to be blocked off.
West 90th Street
The block association has held a block party between Columbus and Central Park West for several years. For the 4th year they will be doing a haunted maze on the northeast corner of 90th and Columbus (in front of 65 west 90th) between 5-9 pm.
Lots of street fairs and craft shows are starting up soon – always a good sign that warmer weather is around the corner.
The Spring Craft on Columbus is one of my favorites. It takes place on the sidewalk next to the American Museum of Natural History on Columbus Avenue from 77th to 81st Street. Rows and rows of tents with great crafts, from ceramics to jewelry. Each weekend about 100 artisans exhibit and sell their own work.

I recently signed a petition on Action Network telling Mark Levine, New York City Council Member, 7th District to Remove Hazardous Turf from Soccer Field.
If you have a child at Booker T Washington, you’ve seen them. You’ve stepped on them, swept them up and plucked them from socks fresh out of the dryer: tiny black pellets – ground up tire rubber – from the field adjacent to MS54 where our kids have recess and play before and after school.
It’s warming up, you wanna get back out and enjoy the neighborhood and here is a great way to do it. Landmark West will lead you through the exploration of the architecture of the Upper West Side with a walking tour from West 85th to 103rd streets, Broadway to Riverside Drive. Read more →
It’s the first snowfall of the season in New York City so although the city wanted all non-essential drivers off the streets by 2:30pm, that didn’t stop its other citizenry from playing in the snowdrifts or heading to the hills to toboggan in the park.
