Halloween Greenwich Village

Soho on Spring Street just above Canal Street. It’s soon to be Halloween. There is a group that arrives early each year to begin preparations. I have been to a handful of parades and they have been prepping each time. They start off by body painting a base color. As in, get half naked on the street in front of a bunch of paparazzi. There is quite a crowd that gathers. Later on in the actual parade they go by so quickly most of the crowd probably doesn’t realize that it’s just body paint. But this is an advantage of being in the staging area. Oh, and there are a lot of other interesting characters as well. Did I mention they estimate about a million people are there. Really.
