Temperatures were mild and spirits high last night as Brooklynites of all ages spilled outside to celebrate Halloween.
Local residents keep the tradition going after Clinton Hill's influential and long-running Halloween show shut down in 2017.
The historic doors of the Brooklyn Historical Society are creaking open for a Halloween eve full of ghostly stories and costume fun.
Brooklyn's backyard is being take over by zombies, witches and werewolves for the Prospect Park Alliance's 39th Annual Halloween Haunted Walk and Fair.
It finally felt like an autumn evening last night, just in time for trick-or-treating.
The free family-friendly event takes place in the park this weekend with a spooky pathway curving through Lookout Hill.
Across the borough, window boxes, stoops and front gardens are giving up summer's floral splendor and bursting into autumnal and spooky extravaganzas.
The weather was crisp and perfect for trick-or-treating last night, bringing tiny costumed revelers out across the borough. From over-the-top to traditionally simple, costumes were brought out for children's parades, park events and traditional trick-or-treating.
Vintage black-and-white photos show children in costume at Halloween parties in early 1950s Brooklyn.
Halloween is fast approaching, and with it come all sorts of scary scenarios, like a horde of tiny Minions banging at your door shrieking “trick or treat!” when all you have to offer them is a glass of merlot. Or Ricky’s is sold out of every single hot cop/fireman/doctor/superhero costume in your size. Or worst of all, the water stain on your ceiling that may or may not be evidence of a poltergeist reminds you still haven’t gotten around to getting apartment insurance.
Don’t be scared! Getting apartment insurance is easy — especially if you reach out to Gotham Brokerage Co., Inc.
