Halloween fell on a Monday this year. I planned my nyc trip around Halloween, before i even knew about the Village Halloween Parade. this annual parade brings thousands, and i mean thousands of people together in Greenwich Village for a huge Halloween parade, anyone can be in the parade if they are in a costume, hundreds of puppets are made for the event as well as floats and different cars for projecting music.
Everyone i knew in nyc was at work or in class, so i headed there by myself. Ended up meeting some people on the subway and hung out with them the whole night. We climbed like 4 barricades to get into the parade, found our way into a speakeasy, watched the masked occupiers collect in Union square with the Halloween parade, went to the gun bar, and managed to find our way into a two story rooftop gay club.
