Halloween Around NYC 2021

Hi friends, welcome back! Every year, a select few deck out their NYC town houses in spooky decorations and Iโ€™m ALL about it. I did my research this year to find out the best locations and must-see spots. The most famous decor is on the Upper East Side, but quite a few neighborhoods and famous spots also decorate for fall. Iโ€™ve compiled all the fall spots I discovered into this post for your viewing pleasure ๐Ÿ™‚

On a chilly, crisp fall day, I took the subway to 59th street on the East Side and wandered the avenues up to 86th street finding the best decor. I started on 61st Street and quite a few homes on the block participated in the fun. I found this map online and it guided me to almost all of the pictures youโ€™ll see.

One day I hope my porch will look something like this. I won’t be the scariest house on the block!

This one was my favorite of all the townhomes I saw, I liked how the skeletons coordinated with the blue door.

Their neighbor joined in on the fun too!

This townhouse is a renowned plastic surgeons office and gets an A+ for effort – only in NYC ha!

The middle of Park Avenue lined with fall colors.

This house even has hanging bats!

This is Kelly Ripaโ€™s house all decked out. It was hard to get all five stories of her home in one picture.

This house must have a back entrance somewhere I hope or maybe the sideโ€ฆ I do love the dedication!

In addition to the Upper East Side, the Seaport District always features a fun pumpkin arch. This year vs last year.

I checked out Rockefeller Center to conclude my tour and not only did I find pumpkins, but I stumbled upon the Dรญa de Muertos exhibit. This exhibit runs from October 22 – November 2nd and I enjoyed checking out the unique sculptures.

Not much longer before Rockefeller will be decked for Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you all enjoyed the tour!! Happy Halloween Week!

  1. Great post showing the NYC Hallowe’en spirit Lyssy. So nice when the decorations are well thought out and coordinated. Here, many dump 30 inflatables haphazardly on their lawn and think it looks good. Thanks for sharing. Allan

    1. I guess the one perk to no front yards in the city is no inflatables ha! I wonder how much it cost to have such elaborate decorations, seems professional grade to me. Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I had a blast! ๐ŸŽƒ just wish I couldโ€™ve moved some of the parked cars so I could take in the full view ๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. I agree!! Especially at night when itโ€™s dark out ๐Ÿ‘ป Iโ€™m glad nothing jumped out at me ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. Good job decorating, it’s something I miss in Paris, outside of a few circles of Americanized people there is not that festive Halloween atmosphere that exists in Canada. You can’t have everything.

  3. I love it – although those blue ones are a bit weird; I love that people go crazy for Halloween in the US, I’m definitely going to have to visit one pumpkin season ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Colorado Springs has a map for the best decorated houses at Christmas, but I never thought to wonder if we also have one for houses at Halloween. Some of those townhouses are creepy (esp. those blue skeletons)! Makes me wonder if passers-by don’t knock on the door and say, “Can we come through the haunted house”? Thanks for a fun tour, Lyssy.

    1. I do love houses decorated for Christmas, reminds me of Christmas Vacation ha. There’s an area in Brooklyn that goes all out I’m hoping to see this year. The townhouses were decorated pretty creepy, it looks cool, but I prefer decorating more cute than creepy.
