Do you want to know a secret? Not only is today a favorite holiday of almost everyone I know, but also marks the 35th anniversary of the day I moved to New York from California and never looked back. It certainly wasn’t easy for this native Californian to adjust to the changes in season, and basically having to start all over from scratch in a new home with a new job and making new friends. Let me just say that those first two years were a character builder. But after a period of struggle, I started to thrive, and now I wouldn’t trade New York City for all of the world. I hope that wherever you are, you are happy in your home and with your life and thriving. Happy Halloween everyone!

Instagram Photo of The Week: Jack Skellington on a Brownstone

It’s always fun when Halloween falls on a Monday. This means that on both the Saturday and Sunday of the weekend just prior, Halloween enthusiasts are out everywhere in the city;  swarming the sidewalks and lurking in the subways, traveling to bars, parties, parades and other holiday-specific events. In a city famous for people-watching, it makes for people-watching at its finest. You know who else really gets into  the spirit of Halloween? Rich people who own brownstones. This multi-story screen print of Jack Skellington was spotted on the façade of a brownstone on East 91st Street near the park. The car parked curbside, sadly, obscures the other Nightmare Before Christmas characters, of  which the Oogie Boogie was particularly impressive. Happy Halloween, Everyone!
