This winsome kitty resides on Clifford Place where, in more temperate weather, he (she?) can be found with a very real feline companion!

Winding this dreary day down are a few images I took yesterday at the Garden Spot’s house for all seasons: 57 Franklin Street. The amount of work (not too mention money) this woman puts into decorating her house (which she does every holiday) is truly to be admired. I have a confession to make, though: although her Halloween decor never disappoints I prefer what she does for Easter!

Some of you might recall last year I met the man behind the woman who crafts 85 Calyer Street’s marvelous Halloween displays. His name is Tony and every October 31st he fires up his defanged chainsaw for the enjoyment of children of all ages. I can hardly wait!

Greenpoint Halloween Watch: The Return of The Humboldt Hurler!

Today yours truly found herself traipsing all over the Garden Spot. First it was a belated visit to the Shit Tits. Then I checked out the Greenpoint Food Market (which I highly recommend). After that I swung over to 180 Frost Street to see what’s shaking. Somewhere in between I checked on the progress of my two favorite Halloween haunts: 648 Humboldt Street (whose staple I like to call “the Humboldt Hurler” which graces the beginning of this post) and 97 Russell Street. The competition is heating up and it’s looking good. Follows is a slide show highlighting their progress. Enjoy!

New York Shitty Analysis: 97 Russell is lagging behind— but we still have 21 days to go!

Okay. So I have given everyone the good news that 648 Humboldt Street has started construction on this year’s fright fest. Well, I have even more Halloween happiness to impart: their friendly rivals at 97 Russell Street are up to some ghoulish goodness of their own!

Some of you might recall the lady behind this wonderful display got off to a late start last year. This was because she took a trip to Egypt!

97c

She has gotten off to a much earlier start this year…

97d

and it’s looking good!!!

If or when the opportunity arises do swing by and see this wonderful display unfold for yourself. If you happen to catch her working be sure to say “hi” and thank her for making Halloween a lot more fun for all of us. She’s a really sweet lady!
