I happened to be in the West Village in New York City the day before Halloween, and had to take some pictures of the decorations that were carried out so brilliantly by home and business owners alike. I love that the neighborhood got into the spirit (heh) and that some home owners really went for it in a big way. You can find elaborate displays anywhere, sometimes in surprising places, like one lone townhouse on a side street on the Upper East Side.
Fabulous entrance to a house on Bank Street. I met the owner and she was happy that I got such a kick out of what she and her family had done.
