Although I love Florida it's hard to beat the Fall and the Festivities of Halloween in New York City! These people (my kind) get really excited and it shows, in all of the decorations all over the City. I actually flew back to Florida on Halloween and was excited to see some New York ladies on the plane with hats and costume shirts! I was headed home to celebrate my son Stephen's birthday on Halloween and my husband Rocco's birthday the next day on Nov1 st.
Every year the street where my daughter lives has a big celebration. They close the street, remove all the cars and thousands of kids from all over the City come to Trick or Treat! It is a truly a spectacular event. I usually spend Halloween in Florida with Stephen for his birthday, but I actually got a little taste of the festivities two years ago when Hurricane Sandy hit. I was scheduled to fly home as usual but because of the storm I could not get out. The event had been canceled but the street was still decked out with decorations and about 2,000 kids and families showed up anyway. I was amazed and could only imagine what it is like with double that amount of people!!!
Over the years this event has brought some celebrities and Stephanie (my Daughter) has seen Jennifer Garner and her daughter and Conon O'Brien with his daughter! Such a fun time for parents as well as the kids! This year my daughter and her neighbors set up a dance club outside of their building. Dressed as ghosts, werewolves and witches as the DJ played music everyone danced.
