At this time of year, when the leaves flutter like kaleidoscopic pinwheels and the bite in the air is as crisp as a New York State Macintosh apple, spooky, mystical winds swirl through the hills and dales of the historic Hudson River Valley.
And the tiny, bucolic village of Sleepy Hollow, hard by the river in Westchester County, is Halloween central. What else would you expect from a place whose high school football team boasts the name "The Horsemen," where the tours of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery are booked solid, where the street sign proclaiming "Broadway" is orange and black, and where the hottest ticket around is the Hudson Valley Blaze, nights of thousands of lighted, carved jack o'lanterns? And oh, yeah, where even the tiny, green parklet in front of the gas station has a bronze sculpture of the Headless Horseman mounted on his steed and tossing his pumpkin head toward The Headless Horseman bridge?
You can even buy cool caps and awesome T-shirts, telling everyone you meet that you "lost your head in Sleepy Hollow, NY"!
But for now... some pictures.
