new york brownstone

when we lived in nashville our neighbors went to great lengths to decorate their yard for halloween. you know.... mums, hay bales, scarecrows, and those classy blow up pumpkins the size of a house.

instead of clark griswold yard contests, new yorkers decorate their brownstones. the upper west side does not disappoint though i tend to favor the understated schemes.

ps: the village does it right at christmas time.

Those pumpkins are so tasteful. We have one lonely pumpkin outside our house as a tribute to an American Halloween in Sicily. I need to buy some more pumpkins at the market tomorrow... little guy needs some friends!

Those spiders crawling up the building are utterly horrifying.

That is so cool! How neat! Can't wait to see how they go out for Christmas!

Love the pumpkins on the first house!

How exactly do people do all of that? Crazy ladders....Hanging out the windows?

However they do it, it sounds just as fun (andnot nearly as messy and cluttered) as yard decorating "contests"!

There's an SF townhouse I drive past every morning with HORRIFYING BLOODY BABIES in the window. This is so much better.

Oh how I love these! I'm living in Australia right now, where Hallowe'en isn't celebrated. I've had more than a few Aussies ask me when it is! And I can't find a pumpkin anywhere!
