This weekend, the person I have been dating, their best friend, and myself decided to take a vacation out of Cleveland to go visit Sleepy Hollow, New York, sort of a Halloween Hoot-n-nanny. We visited the town of Sleep Hollow, the Kykuit Manson, and the graveyard in Sleepy Hollow. We also took in a live action drama about called the Sleepy Hollow Experience, where we watched actors present the tale of Sleepy Hollow as a live drama. Was an amazing time away and a good ramp up for Halloween. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we did the visit.
Here are a couple pics from the Sleepy Hollow Experience.
We then went to the Jackolantern Blaze event. A thousand plus pumpkins carved into various artistic representations., enjoy a few of them below.
On Saturday, we headed into the city to take in the sites in Greenwich Village and Christopher street. While, heading to Christopher Street, we wondered upon a landmark some of you may know from a popular horror movie, American Werewolf in London.
Next, we headed to Christopher street for another historic landmark.
Sunday, we headed back to Sleepy Hollow to check out Kykuit mansion, home of JD Rockefeller.
We ended our visit with a trip to the Old Dutch Chuch and checkout the cemetery.
This is just a small sampling of our visit to a truly awesome part of New York. And was a great way to get into the Halloween spirit with something from American History. After all, we have taken many holidays and truly made them American with our own spins of fun and frivolity.
