Bay Ridge doesn't get all dressed up for Halloween-- in fact, the Christmas lights that cross Fifth Avenue were just hung up last week.
But a few places in the neighborhood do get in the trick-or-treat spirit. One house on the way to the subway made an attempt to be scary:
The same place has a "decoration" that really did startle me the first time I saw it. It looks harmless during the day, but late at night it really is pretty creepy.
But my favorite Halloween display of all is at a pizza parlor a couple of blocks away. Do you say "emm" when you down a slice, or is that just for skeletons?
