Kids to take a Haunted Walk on Halloween

There will be a zombie behind every bush in Owl’s Head Park in Bay Ridge on Halloween. But don’t worry, they won’t hurt you.

Zombies, goblins, witches and Frankenstein’s monster will all be there as part of the 18th Annual Haunted Halloween Walk, an event sponsored by state Sen. Marty Golden.

Owl’s Head Park, located at Colonial Road and 67th Street, will be turned into a scary scene, with all sorts of frightening creatures popping out from bushes and trees to “greet” passersby, at the event, which will take place on Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31, from 3-9 p.m.

Bay Ridge community board rejects DOT’s Fourth Ave. plan

Bay Ridge civic leaders want the city to step on the brakes instead of driving through a controversial plan to reconfigure a long stretch of Fourth Avenue to make the heavily-crossed thoroughfare safer for pedestrians.

Spooky store windows entice Bay Ridge shoppers

The shoes normally displayed in the front window of Areosoles, a store on 86th Street in Bay Ridge, had to share space with “Autumn Night,” a painting depicting terrifying bats flying past a full moon on their way to perform evil deeds.

Other store windows in Bay Ridge were filled with paintings of zombies, witches, haunted houses, grave yards and other frightening images.

But if you think the dark images scared away customers, you would be wrong. It was just the opposite. Shoppers loved it!

Quaglione presents his to-do list to voters

Lots of people have to-do lists. It’s a way of organizing tasks into manageable chunks. There’s also a sense of accomplishment as each task is completed, turning a to-do item into a done deal.
