Its a strange Halloween this year, that's for sure.  As our city struggles to recover from this unimaginable storm, our hearts and thoughts are with all of our friends who are suffering.  The loss sustained is unimaginable.  We are so grateful to have made it through with electricity, housing, food, and our health. We truly feel lucky.

One of New York City's great strengths, I believe, is how it comes together in times of crisis. I experienced it firsthand during the blackout of 2003, when communities banded together to make sure that everyone was taken care of, and it is happening again now.  So with all of the chaos and despair of this hurricane aftermath, Halloween will still go on.  NYC kids wouldn't have it any other way.  It may be the eeriest Halloween ever with all of downtown Manhattan blacked-out, but I know New Yorkers will make the best of it.  We will be staying here in Brooklyn, maybe going trick-or-treating, maybe not. Most definitely cooking up a big fall stew, and cherishing all that we have.

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope yours is magical.
