    It’s peak pumpkin season here in Brooklyn — that time of year when building entrances are brimming with merry orange gourds.

    Brownstoner has spotted a number of superb stoop displays — the googley-eyed Heights pumpkin below might be our current fave.

    But painted, carved, or bare, every Brooklyn pumpkin is as unique as the home it gourds.

    Send us your photos of stoop pumpkins and we’ll add ’em here. Email them with the neighborhood name to or tag @brownstoner in a tweet or Instagram post.
