Halloween In The Hamptons

Sag Harbor, New York, October 28, 2007 - In both 2005 and 2006 I had classes at NYU on Halloween night, which made for the perfect excuse to go see the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. (It's too crowded to actually see the parade, but the crowds of costumed spectators are a parade enough.) This year I stayed home and therefore, sadly, got no pictures.

However, I did take photos at a Halloween Parade that we accidentally encountered while driving around the Hamptons the day after my high school reunion. When we pulled into Sag Harbor, the town was full of kids (and some parents) dressed up in much better costumes than we remember when we were young. Turns out they were getting ready for a parade down Main Street, which ended up blocking our car in and making escape impossible. Not that we needed to escape: the weather was great, and the parade was one of those cheery small-town affairs that made us want to find the nearest real estate office and move in immediately to the very first house they showed us.

But the commute would have been crazy, so instead we simply drove home that night. Sigh, maybe some day...
