"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Boo York Minute

My cousin’s too big for trick-or-treating, but he was still bummed that Halloween was cancelled. Downed power lines, still rippling with electricity, all over his town. Kids had to stay inside, munching from the family stash.

In our neighborhood, it was business as usual, a rare time when Halloween in the city is better than the variety just across the Bridge.

We have a candy exchange in a big park. The scene is both efficient and chaotic as you can fill your pumpkin in minutes, but the total experience pales in comparison to the coordinated march from house to house that I remember from my childhood.

Luckily, we have a few local spots that give my kids an idea of how it’s supposed to be…

CC!!!!! And not opting out just makes me so psyched about him as a person. Silly I know, but I can't help it.

The snow said it all. It is an early Christmas, and yes Virginia, Santa Claus is still a Yankee...

(or should that be Jolly Jenkins? >;)
