    Brooklyn takes Halloween seriously. Across the borough, window boxes, stoops and front gardens are giving up summer’s floral splendor and bursting into autumnal and spooky extravaganzas.

    From simple-statement pumpkins to elaborate installations of ghosts, ghouls and cobwebs, Brooklynites are ready for Halloween and the hordes of costumed children (and adults) that descend upon the borough’s streets.

    If you haven’t yet hauled out your seasonal decor, you still have some time before Halloween — perhaps the creativity of your Brooklyn neighbors can offer some inspiration.

    My neighborhood really gets in the spirit
