Like other holidays in NYC, we New Yorkers like to celebrate Halloween in a spectacular way. (Imagine the crazy costumes we can create behind our closed apartment doors.) Each year when the big night rolls around, I find that I haven’t planned far enough in advance, so I’m scrambling last minute trying to figure out what I’m going to wear. Sometimes, I don’t decide until October 30, and by that late date, all the good stuff at the costume shops is sold out.
With the holiday on a Saturday this year, I suspect the Halloween hoopla will be bigger and better than the past six years. So, I’m trying to get ahead of the game and starting to kick ideas around now.

Usually, I dress up in something kooky and march in or attend the Greenwich Village Parade, and this year I plan to do the same. Even though it’s one of the largest and most popular Halloween events, the parade isn’t the only big party in town. Haunted houses and other spooky shindigs are already underway and it’s only the first week of October.
What do you intend to do for Halloween? No plans yet? If you’re in the city and still undecided, check out my list of Halloween happenings on CubeSmart’s NYC city guide.
Whatever you do for this hallowed holiday, have a ghostly good time!
