New York City is beautiful all year round, but it is spectacular during the Holidays and Halloween. Residents take both very seriously and you can see that all around town. Brownstones and buildings dress up in stunning and spooky Halloween decorations. While you will be able to find great spooky displays, the best Halloween decorations in NYC are actually in the Upper East Side and Upper West Side.
Of course, there are also some good Halloween displays in Midtown, Chelsea and the Seaport District. Brooklyn and the West Village also have some good decorations and regardless, of where you go, you will find some great places to take photos at. Locations tend to be the same years after years, but after living three years in NYC, I can guarantee that decorations are getting better and better each year.
Scroll below to find the best Halloween displays in the city, starting with the Upper East and West sides, and ending with Chelsea. You’ll find the exact location and address for each should you like to visit.
