Halloween scenes (reader edition)

Many thanks to everyone who passed along some Halloween-related photos...

From Editrrix...







From Bobby Williams...




From Blue Glass...



From 68 Comeback... (and Batman has to wait in line!)



A favorite ... the blood drive truck in front of the vampire store on Avenue A... Via NYCETC



Fox and Hounds at Lakeside Lounge via Bonnie...



A morning-after walk home by a Cat Woman on Third Avenue via someone who didn't leave a name...



And two morning-after shots from readers showing two different takes on St. Mark's Place and Second Avenue...

At 6 a.m., showing a rather apocalyptic scene...



And a few hours later, where some zombies were on the prowl...

Sorry, Esquared — added two more pics to the batch since you left the comment... The reader said Cat Woman still had on her cat makeup in the morning and looked as if she "just rolled out of bed." I don't know. I liked the shot.

I like the Blue Glass photo. You know its funny but back in the day people actually use to look like this fellow sitting in the middle. Brings a tear to my eye. Great shot! Looks great blown up.

Living on St Marks place (b/t 2nd & 3rd no less) for 33 years is bound to have some effect on a person (me), but I have to say last night was something truly unheralded.

As close as I can describe between 12-4, the street resembled nothing so much as Times Square on New Year's Eve. What was even more sobering (ha) was the arrival of cops who placidly navigated the drunk, screaming, traffic stopping, collectively shouting crowd without even attempting to clear the street or the sidewalk.

Living on SMP for so long, one adjusts to the fact that inhabitants are deprived of certain civil rights - quiet, privacy, garbage pick up, but this was stunning.

I have seen everything here - 70s speed freaks to 80s junkies to the riots in the park. I thought for sure, the same cops (and helicopters) who turned out for that event - or the Republican convention - would show. Nope. What up with that?
