Spooky Szn:
How To Spend Halloween In New York City This Year

+

October is the designated spooky month, but honestly, these last two years have been the ongoing nightmare nobody asked for. 

+ +

+ +

Fortunately, 

Halloween in New York City is poised to be resurrected like a Thriller zombie, and we’re totally here for it.

+ + +

+
+
+

When we were children, 

trick or treating was the custom, and some of us stretched it into our teens and beyond, not caring how ridiculous we looked, because who doesn’t like free candy?

+ + +

+
+
+

+ +

+
+
+

For those who are parents, 

you’ll be able to relive this fun tradition through the eyes of your own children & be sure to steal some candy once they’ve gone to bed as compensation.

+ +

+
+
+

Hey, you deserve it!

The kids don’t need that entire plastic pumpkin of Snickers, Reese’s, Butterfinger, and Candy Corn, and they won’t notice some of it is missing.

If you like thrills, chills, and things that go bump in the night, you might want to visit some haunted houses, which have the appropriate COVID-19 protocol in place.

+ +

+ +

Blood Manor

bills itself as the premiere haunted
house in NYC, BrainXcape
offers escape rooms with a horror
twist, and Blackout has a strict 18 &
older policy with a waiver requirement.

+ + +

+
+
+

The Times on this immersive experience: “The goal is clearly not to give your nerves a safe tickle, it’s to titillate & generally mess with your mind. It succeeds magnificently." 

+ + +

+
+
+

You have to go alone, and if darkness, water, enclosed spaces & sudden loud noises, no worries. You can shout out the safe word given in advance, and be escorted out without a refund.
