A Museum for the Season

  October 30, 2015  //  Morbid Anatomy Museum

Its Halloween week. Like all of us, you want something fun to do, something Halloween-y, but maybe not with jack-o-lanterns and costumes. Something scary. Something spooky. Look no further: there’s no better way to make your mind expand and your skin crawl than a trip to the Morbid Anatomy Museum at 424 Third Avenue! Yes,…

Malefic Merchants

  October 30, 2015  //  Merchant's House Museum

Looking for a spooky spot to call your haunt for the week? Check out the Merchant’s House Museum. Located at 29 East Fourth St., this building is not technically about anything Halloween-y. However, it has been called “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House” by the New York Times, and that makes it worth a visit as we…

It’s BOO — at the Zoo!

  October 29, 2015  //  Boo at the Zoo

The wonderful thing about Halloween is that nearly everyone gets in on the spirit of the thing. And who more appropriate to get involved in this holiday than the Bronx Zoo? Animals are such an important part of the Halloween tradition. They show up everywhere — bats, toads, newts, wolves, cats, rats, rhinoceroses… OK, well…

It Takes a Village to Have a Halloween Parade

  October 28, 2015  //  The Village Halloween Parade

One of New York City’s most well-loved Halloween traditions is the Village Halloween Parade. Now in its 42nd year, the parade usually attracts around 50,000 people — and that’s just the marchers! The parade really gets into the spirit of the holiday, and encourages dressing up, playing roles, and generally being weird and spooky. If…

It Blinded me with Science

  October 23, 2015  //  New York Hall of Science

The museum, I mean. But I can tell you one thing: if you’re ever feeling bored with the day to day of normal life, and you think you might just want today to be a bit… I don’t know. Special. If you ever feel like that, you should check out the New York Hall of…

Scary Sculptures

  October 22, 2015  //  Halloween Harvest Festival

A sculpture garden is not the first thing that comes to mind when I, at least, think of Socrates. My mind tends to veer off towards either teaching methods or hemlock. And it’s certainly not the first thing I think of when I think Halloween (though there’s admittedly some crossover there with the holiday and…

Halloween, Gone to the Dogs

  October 21, 2015  //  Halloween Dog Parade

One of New York City’s most cherished Halloween traditions is the Village Halloween Parade. Which is, in its own right, very fun and quite a lovely way to spend your evening. However, there are certain things that the Village Parade lacks. For instance, puppies dressed up in costumes! And who doesn’t want to see that?…

The Hall that has it All

  October 16, 2015  //  Carnegie Hall

New York is home to some amazing cultural and artistic treasures. The MoMA, the philharmonic, the Smithsonian, and so on. But it is also home to the single most famous concert hall in the world. I won’t tell you what it is (if you haven’t already guessed), but as a hint, I can tell you…

The Cathedral of a Saint

  October 15, 2015  //  St. Patrick's Cathedral

Fun fact: the more than five million people who visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral (located at 5th Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets) are not all worshipers or religious pilgrims. No, many of them are there because of the Cathedral’s historic value and great beauty! With such a well-known site right on your doorstep, you might…
