Something I will definitely miss about New York City and the US is the intensity with which people celebrate Halloween. They go full out with over-the-top Halloween decorations, baking, cocktails and more. Spooky season is absolutely a major thing and I am all for it. Especially because growing in France, and then living in the UK, Halloween was not such a big thing for me.
Beyond baking and cocktails, there is one thing about spooky season that I love more than most: Halloween decorations. Walking the streets of some neighborhoods in October is an absolutely delight. In my opinion, this is especially true when it comes to the Upper West and Upper East Sides as well as the West Village. Thus, scroll below to see where you can find the best spooky displays in Greenwich Village!
Let’s start with the mildest one of all. Bleecker Street is known for a lot of independent shops, who happen to put up some really cute decorations come Halloween. Of course, they tend to be more on the subtle side but we love them nonetheless. Shops that always deliver when it comes to Halloween decorations include:
- Stone Clover
- Little Words Project
Perry Street has a lot of spooky houses and amazing decorations. Most of them are put up starting the 2nd week of October but you’ll still be able to catch some amazing displays first week of October. A lot of them are actually located between W 11th St and W 4th St so you’ll be able to see a lot without moving too much!
W 4th Street
Maybe this Halloween display is of a different kind than the others because the color palette is in the neutral whites and beige rather than orange, but they still look amazing. What’s great with Halloween decorations is that you’re free to do as you wish. White pumpkin will work just as well and create some amazing decorations! And I am not even talking about pink… which you’ll see if you scroll down to W 12th St!
W 11th Street
Okay, so W 11th Street may have been my favorite this year because there was so much going on! Especially those crazy Halloween decorations with so many pumpkin and skeletons between Waverly Pl & 7th Ave. They sure got people to stop and take pictures!
W 12th Street
Last but not least is W 12th St, which will have great decorations all the way as October progresses. However, I was able to scout just two, which I believe look incredible. Especially because one of them went as far as someone could get with the Barbie obsession: pink pumpkins and skeletons! The winner so far if you want my opinion!
