i brought my camera out yesterday as the kids and i wandered around the upper west side after school and admired a few brownstones that have gone all out for halloween this season. these photos don’t do any of the neighborhood justice, there are countless apartment buildings and brownstones scattered throughout the upper west side that are dressed up so festive this time of year. we actually decorated our own building with all of our neighbors a few days ago and between my kids and the rest of the kids in our building, it turned out very very very decorated (and busy?! how much spider web is too much spider web!) ha! it’s cute though. and while i’m not really one for spooky stuff, i am so proud of how detailed and dedicated many neighbors in the area seem to be this time of year when it comes to decorating their properties. as to where they store all this stuff the other 11 months of the year, give or take, is beyond me.
we stood in front of this one for maybe ten minutes because samson really enjoyed taking it all in, bless his sweet spirit that hopefully still sleeps through the night after observing all of that!
this one really fascinates me, because like, they are willing to forgo their front door for a few weeks because they are just that dedicated to the decor! mad respect. also, it’s so aesthetically pleasing and beautiful if you get what i mean?! like, how does one do that with giant spiders and skeletons?
for those in the area wanting to see these in person, the first brownstone photographed is on 90th street between central park west and columbus avenue. the second is on 94th between the same blocks. there are some impressive decorations on several brownstones located at 69th street from broadway all the way over to central park west, too.
