Boo! It’s THE RIDE here and I’m really getting into the, ahem, spirit of things now that Halloween is quickly approaching! If there is a ghost of a chance that you’ll be in New York City before that magical evening of mischief, mystery and trick-or-treaters is over, I recommend that check out my list of the best ways to celebrate Halloween in NYC:
Watch the Greenwich Village Parade
You won’t want to miss the parade of almost 50,000 revelers decked out in the scariest, most hilarious, and wildly creative costumes you’ve ever seen. Dress in costume and join the march, or simply enjoy the show.
Follow the Ghost Busters Guide to New York
Both the original 1984 blockbuster and other movies in the Ghost Busters franchise feature a number of prominent NYC landmarks. Learn about them in this handy guide, and then give yourself a tour.
Go to Boo at the Bronx Zoo
Each year the Spooktacular Nightwalk gets creepier, the Corn Maze gets trickier, and the Pumpkin Carving gets craftier—you’ll find these attractions and lots more at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s annual Boo at the Zoo.
Enjoy THE RIDE in Masquerade
THE RIDE (that’s me!) takes a twisted seasonal turn this month with THE RIDE in Masquerade, a magical journey featuring beguiling masked entertainers and musical performances in a minor key. It’s the perfect way to seize that fleeting but enchanting specter of fall in NYC! Since it’s only available through October 31, I urge you to get your tickets now!
