Halloween

A brilliant Halloween swept away the gloom from a city that desperately needed some good tidings. I left my home late Friday afternoon in my old, fat Elvis costume, and the streets of Nolita were packed with children dressed as skunks, pixies, angels, and such. I had to stop to watch this mini-parade of cuteness. Store owners filled the little tykes’ pumpkins and bags from their own pumpkins and bags with the requisite sweet stuff. I grabbed a cab to take me to a production meeting over at Webster Hall, where I was to be a judge at the $5,000 costume contest. Adults and teenagers in clown suits and monster masks strolled past at lights, and I asked my Pakistani driver what he thought of Halloween. He told me that he never understood it: “Americans are usually so brash and poorly dressed despite the great wealth of the country. But on this day they go crazy and are suddenly creative and very nice.” He concluded that it gave him “a great feeling of optimism about us.” [Steve Lewis]
