When most people think of trick-or-treating, they imagine costumed children walking door to door in a suburban cul-de-sac and gathering candy from all the neighbors. However, that is not to say that city kids are left out of the Halloween festivities. The city recently announced expanded Halloween hours for Open Streets in honor of the holiday, museums and neighborhood organizations put on family-friendly events, and stores and restaurants get in on the fun by handing out treats to costumed visitors. Additionally, from doormen handing out candy to townhouse owners decorating their stoops, residential buildings can get in the spirit of spooky season. We take a look at listings in some of the most popular neighborhoods for trick-or-treating.

After a two-year, pandemic-induced hiatus, West Side Rag announces that the neighborhood's famed Halloween festivities are making a comeback. This has inspired residents of side streets to step up their decoration game, which was highly admirable to begin with.

In Carnegie Hill, the annual Spooktacular block party will feature a DJ, costume contest, and "tons of candy" from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Halloween. After the party's over, the houses on side streets are impressively decorated for spectators and trick-or-treaters alike.

From Halloween Fest 2022 in Fort Greene Park to BAMBoo!, Brooklyn Academy of Music's free block party, there is no shortage of things to do for Halloween in Fort Greene. Even if all one is doing is trick-or-treating, the neighborhood is famous for its historic brownstones that make natural canvases for Halloween decorations.

Park Slope enjoys a reputation as one of New York's family-friendliest neighborhoods, and Halloween further burnishes those credentials. The Park Slope Halloween Parade is among the largest children's Halloween parades in the country, restaurants and merchants lining 5th and 7th Avenues have a reputation for being generous to trick-or-treaters, and residents of the brownstone-lined side streets go all out on Halloween decorations.
