Ghosts and goblins of all ages are invited to kick-up their heels and pick up some treats at its second annual Trunk-or-Treat event. Live music and line dancing instruction by Urban Rodeo in Naugles Barn, scary story hour with children’s author Maureen Sullivan, pumpkin painting, a costume parade, lawn games, Greenport Brewery beer, and baked goods by North Fork Flour Shoppe for purchase.
New York City’s premiere haunted attraction is now open with all new scenes to terrorize you, including all-new frights like Maggot Invasion, Hannibal’s Hell, and Killer Clowns. The Halls are haunted with some old faves like The Crypt, but 75% of this year’s show is new or refreshed.
The Haunted Battlefield is a new feature and nods to the history of Blood Manor’s location at 359 Broadway. In the late 19th century, the building housed the studio of Matthew Brady, the first “celebrity photographer” known for his daring Civil War photos and pictures of famous people. In fact, the portrait of Abraham Lincoln on the $5 bill was shot right in this studio.

Recommended for ages 14 years old and up
Open every weekend and some weekdays from September 30th through November 5th. Timed-entry tickets can be purchased online or at the door.

Joel McHale reads HALLOWEEN HUSTLE
Emmy-nominated comedian, actor, and host Joel McHale reads “HALLOWEEN HUSTLE” for SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Storyline Online and invites young readers to unleash their fancy Frankenstein feet this spooky season and learn all the steps to Halloween Hustle.
“Halloween Hustle” is a light-hearted tale of a festive Halloween night in which McHale, Skeleton, and gobs of giddy ghouls head over to Ghost’s “fa-boo-lous” party where they enter the spooktacular dance contest! Written by Charlotte Gunnufson, illustrated by Kevan J. Atteberry, and published by Two Lions, an imprint of Amazon Publishing, there are pumpkin heads, hissy black cats, swingy-swaying skeleton girls, and more, all whooping it up at a King Kong-sized monster mash.
As with all Storyline Online videos, this is accompanied by a complementary supplemental activity guide that aligns with Common Core Standards that strengthen verbal, written, and comprehension skills. Aimed at Kindergarten–2nd-grade students, these activities encourage children to engage in critical thinking activities and explore the themes of each book, including topics such as perseverance, friendship, rhythm, and rhyme.
McHale joins the illustrious cast of Storyline Online readers including Angela Bassett, Kristen Bell, Terry Crews, Viola Davis, Cynthia Erivo, Jennifer Garner, Allison Janney, John Lithgow, Rami Malek, Marc Maron, Seth Meyers, Chris Pine, Justin Theroux, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Yeoh, and many more who have volunteered their time and talent to promote literacy and inspire a love of reading in hundreds of millions of children around the globe.
