Well they certainly pull out all the stops for Halloween. I watched the parade in the Village with friends John and Lea for an hour in the rain. It's a sea of inhumanity. You don't even need to see the parade because everyone is dressed up. I didn't dress up personally but I was all in tweed anyway, so people seemed to assume it was a costume.
This is pretty much all you could see of the parade anyway...I should have taken a photo on the subway. It puts a smile on your phase to be riding along with everyone in costume.
