October 28, 2015

  • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and first lady Chirlane McCray let loose their inner buccaneers in last year’s Park Slope Halloween Parade ...
  • … and audition for the mayor’s upcoming role as Emperor Warren Wilhelm.
  • City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Public Advocate Letitia James and Assemblyman Keith Wright went medieval at Fort Tryon earlier this month.
  • And an utterly unrecognizable City Councilman Paul Vallone scares the daylights out of children last year at the Alley Pond Environmental Center Haunted Hike.
  • He may not have been in costume (the bow tie is perennial), but City Councilman Andy King got up close and personal with the Caped Crusader.
  • And let’s not forget the supreme champion of Halloween, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s girlfriend Sandra Lee.
