It certainly wasn’t as crowded and insane as it usually is, but people were still out and about. They still decorated their stoops and gave out candy (in various socially distant ways).

People were creative and fun. I almost missed this, but I look down more these days to avoid tripping.

Families were out and about in costume. Mom and dad! Where are your masks? (I wouldn’t want to have covered up those sparkles either.)

  1. Okay, now that I’ve pulled myself away from watching the s-l-o-w election returns, I’ve looked more closely at these great Halloween pictures you took. The RBG window sillouette is pure genius! We must never forget! But the others are comical and such fun, aren’t they? The time machine phone booth and the monster under the walk way! New York must be such a great place to live. You are blessed.

  2. Hi Rebecca. I’ve got CNN on right now, I can’t take it. Finish the counts please (but I understand how overwhelmed you are poll workers, I don’t mean to complain).
