Celebrate Halloween with New York City Flair
Can you believe it? 2014 is almost over, and Halloween is just around the corner. The weather’s cooling off, leaves are changing, and people everywhere are planning their parties, costumes and frights for the big night. If you’re lucky enough to be planning your Halloween celebrations for New York City, you’ve got a sizable task in choosing the events you’ll attend while in the city.
There are a few elements you must get in place before you choose your Halloween event; having safe transportation, especially on a night where alcohol is involved, is paramount to any enjoyment. Taxis and public transit are rarely the safest or most reliable option, unfortunately. Booking New York car service is the ideal way to get around on Halloween in the city; you’ll have the services of a professional chauffeur and the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a guaranteed ride home at the end of the night.
Once you’ve got your car booked, all you have to do is choose the right Halloween festivities. Here’s the lowdown on some of the best NYC Halloween events in 2014.
1. Gustavino’s Halloween Gala: Sinners and Saints Masquerade
