Greenpoint Halloween Watch: Looking Good On Russell Street
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Yesterday I shared the good news about 648 Humboldt Street’s Halloween decoration extravaganza. Today I will give equal time to their neighbor (and friendly competitor): 97 Russell Street.
At long last my itch for demonic clowns has been scratched!
Abandon all hope ye who enter here!
NOTE: this butcher knife wielding gentleman is wearing a NYC Department of Corrections ball cap. I found this to be a tremendously amusing touch. When asked by the owner of this house why I found this so entertaining I couldn’t muster a satisfactory answer. I just do.
The headless horseman is on the synthesizer.
Satan himself is twinkling the ivories.
A ghostly quartet provides the chorus.
And a good time was had by all— even the rats got into the act!
I want to give a New York Shitty shout-out of gratitude to the folks at 97 Russell Street for making Halloween a little more fun for all of us. Thanks guys, gals… and ghouls!
