Three of my closest high school friends now live in and around New York City. That is reason enough to visit the Big Apple before I head out of the country, with no return date in mind. Add to that, I've never been in the city that never sleeps for Halloween. Having been for NYE several times, I know how amazing NYC can be during a holiday. The streets and subways are alive with festive people en route to their various parties and gatherings. The ghouls night out would have to be incredible, and it was! See for yourself. As luck would have it, I happened to be in town for the NYC Marathon as well, and that was a beautiful thing all its own.
