Almost Time for Our October 31st Parade and Party
By Caitlin Hawke
Tuesday is Halloween, so you all know what that means, yes?
To any kids reading, I am sympathetic since I understand this might mean you have to wait to use the bathroom mirror to apply your spooky facepaint. Your parents, too, will be busy getting their costumes on. But you are all gonna pull it together and meet up with your Block Association friends at the NW corner of West End Avenue and W. 102nd Street just before 6 p.m. when the parade steps off. If you miss the parade, just follow the squeals back to W. 102nd Street between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue for the party.
For galleries of parties past, see here and here. And look for the 2017 gallery in the coming couple of weeks.
See you out there and look for the Block Association volunteers, St. Luke's residence friends, and captain Jane Hopkins who make it all happen.
Thanks to neighbor David Ochoa who kindly allowed me to illustrate this post with his noir collage.
