yes, Halloween is a big holiday. Our Stores are full of Halloween stuffs, and people really spend money on them. but after 9/11, Kids would rather make trick n treat trips in business areas, not residential. so, the stores, restaurants and many other businesses prepare something for the kids. oh, the East Village Halloween parade is big and so much fun. I watched it every year when my work place was just one block away from where the parade started (spring street & West Broadway) https://www.halloween-nyc.com/ I was so fascinated by people’s imaginations. but now I avoid to go to crowded places.
