All atremble on Hallowe’en in New York

Hats off to you, New Yorkers, you really know how to scare up the Hallowe’en spirit. After writing my post about a traditional Irish Hallowe’en, I ventured forth to take in the bone-chilling sights of 78th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and experience the perilous thrills of 69th Street on the Upper West Side. I was not disappointed. Both blocks were filled with fiendishly frightening pint-sized demons and monsters and ablaze with Hallowe’en horror. Here are a few ghoulish glimpses of the dastardly delights in Manhattan this evening:

Best Hallowe’en costumes moment:

These guys get my vote for favourite costumes, devilishly dangerous!

Best ooooooooh moment:

Black Pearl cannons fire at Tortuga

Big shout out to the roguish rascals responsible for Tortuga & The Black Pearl

Proper scary moment:

Life-sized, life-like & dreadfully diabolical

Time to tiptoe all atremble off to bed. I feel the veil draw thin betwixt this world and the spirit world, so I shall light a candle to guide the spirits on their way and wish you a safe and  spooky Hallowe’en.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

  1. Thanks for the PIX. Glad to know Halloween survived the storm

      I do believe Hallowe’en can survive just about anything. If it can weather the transition from the pagan Samhain to the Christian All Hallow’s Eve, I don’t think a little bit of snow will stop it 😉
