Halloween has been on the come-up over the past few years, and the night of ghouls, goblins, and scantily-clad lady firemen/police officers/nurses/prostitutes has recently supplanted New Year's Eve as the biggest shit show of a holiday in NYC. This year the tornado continued, and true to form, the New York faithful took to the streets on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to celebrate the holiday weekend. Halloween night always kicks off in the West Village, and we were there to capture the greatest costumes from the 38th Annual Village Halloween Parade. Hit the jump to see photos of the best costumes from the parade.
