Halloween Sights: Spooky, Scary & Gross!

10/29/2010:

[Finishing up the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 "Halloween Sights 2010" series for the year...]

Doggies can get spooked!

Since our loving four-legged friends aren’t quite as sophisticated as us humans – they often get spooked by things we’d know were fake from a mile away (like that cat that drove Oscar bananas).

In the final Hoboken Halloween Decorations photo gallery of 2010 – we have:

  • A creepy mask that somehow didn’t spook the Hoboken411 Mascot…
  • An ominous ghost / skeleton that rattled his nerves a bit…
  • The ghost bubble at Mario’s Pizza was a good dog-deterrent…
  • Oh, and Oscar didn’t see this package of brains at Fran’s Italian Delicatessen, but it made me kinda queasy…

Enjoy your (Halloween) weekend – whatever you choose to do!

Halloween Sights: Engineering degree needed!

Best spider web decoration in Hoboken!

Everyone who lives in the northern neighborhoods in Hoboken – (or anyone from “downtown” or out-of-town making a trip to appreciate the incredible decorations) – likely knows about this display at Garden and 11th.

This rope web is huge and very well-engineered (same as last year). It usually takes a few days for the owners (and possibly help) to get up perfectly, from what I’ve observed. When completed it makes a lot of Hoboken residents happy, especially kids. Last year a giant spider made its home on the web, and this year it appears to be some sort of futuristic-looking green hornet. Any other ideas what this elaborate creature could be?

Halloween Sights: Classic & Traditional

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 "Halloween Sights 2010" series...]

The conservative decorations are timeless

Some Hoboken411 readers have commented about how decorations seem to be getting more and more elaborate each year. Though I happen to enjoy the creativity and work that go into the all-out displays, there are still the classics – pumpkins, maize, and mums – that look really nice.

Thought I’d share a few of these photos I snapped recently:

Halloween Sights: Old Fashioned Weapons

10/26/2010:

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 "Halloween Sights 2010" series...]

Weapons and blood top Hoboken Halloween choices

Walking around town, I took a quick photo of a Halloween decoration uptown including bloody hatchet hanging through a wrought iron planter. Then a little while later I saw another weapon farther downtown: can anyone guess what business has this Halloween decoration in its window?

On my walk home, I briefly wondered where the phrase “bury the hatchet” comes from. Apparently, this was a tradition among warring Native American tribal Chiefs when they finally came to an agreement with another tribe.

Doesn’t seem like we’ll be burying too many hatchets in Hoboken in that case!
