Halloween Attractions in New York City

 

The biggest Halloween event in the City is Village Halloween Parade (http://www.halloween-nyc.com/ . This cultural event stretching more than a mile, with more than sixty thousands costumed participants, dancers, artists and circus performers. This year Village Parade celebrates it’s 41th anniversary.  If you have never seen it before and  happened to be in the city for the Halloween, you should definitely attend it.

New York City truly is the best host for all the creepy Halloween parties and hunted houses.

One of the oldest and probably most popular once is “Blood Manor” in Soho. (http://bloodmanor.com/). We would recommend it for fans of classic horror. Five thousand square foot labyrinth with seemingly never ending series of rooms, with a different horror setting, from a ghoulish strip club to a butcher shop for humans.

For those who are not impressed with zombies and vampires “Nightmare” prepared a real-life  horror show (http://hauntedhousenyc.com/). This hunted house is based on scary real-life events and disgusting state on NYC’s subway in the ‘80s, with all its dirtiness, creepiness and freaks. All different sorts of killers leading guests into the creepy lives of murderers, such as Charles Manson, Harrison Graham and Aileen Wuornos. Let us warn you, it might get a little physical in there, so be prepared.

For something even more extravagant, visit “Blackout”( http://www.theblackoutexperience.com/)  You must sign a waiver agreeing that you understand there will be “extreme horror, adult sexual content, tight spaces, darkness, strobe – lighting effects, strong odors, exposure to water, physical contact and crawling”. And all this craziness you will be experiencing on alone going through the house. It’s one of a kind Halloween experience, but for those with really strong nervous system. Think twice before you go there.

Exhale, we are done with scary stuff. For a nice kids friendly Halloween we suggest to visit New York Botanical Garden’s Haunted Pumpkin Garden (http://www.nybg.org/exhibitions/2014/haunted-pumpkin-garden/index.php), where you will see pumpkin sculptures in the shapes of spooky creepy – crawlies. They also have a puppet theater and reptile show for kids. Very pleasant way to celebrate Halloween.

Cosmopolitan Hotel invites you to enjoy a complimentary walking tour in Tribeca.
The name stands for the TRIangle BElow CAnal. In the 1970s and ’80s, artists yearning for space to sculpt, paint, and dance colonized the warehouses; Tribeca took shape in this cauldron of creativity. The confluence of imagination, spirit, space, and, most recently, disposable income has produced a neighborhood rich in upscale restaurants, shops, and galleries. Recently ranked by Forbes as one of America’s most expensive zip codes, 10013 Tribeca is also one of Manhattan’s most charming neighborhoods.
