Although this was our 2nd Halloween in Manhattan it was our first Trick or Treating. Kids and families are EVERYWHERE! We went down to 69th St. where 2 blocks of that street are blocked off and the neighborhood goes all out decorating for Halloween and passing out candy. There are other avenues for Trick or Treating. A few of the parks have Halloween events and The American Museum of Natural History is open for kids to come in their costume and go to different exhibits for treats, that's just to name a few. The most interesting thing to me is that almost every store gives out candy. So where the suburban kid goes trick or treating in a neighborhood, the city kids go to store fronts. We went in a doggy salon, Banana Republic, Lancome, restaurants, etc. They all participate. As with every first time adventure in this city you learn what you would do and would not do again, but we had a good time.
After trick or treating we went and at dinner at a Mexican restaurant. A couple in there asked Jack what kind of dinosaur he was and he said "a green one."
The lady bug and puppy. I bet 7 people took their pictures last night... Jacks too.
i sat on the curb out side of the Lancome store to feed Lillie and Elliott dinner while Jack and Freddy T. went through the second half of 69th St.
