my favorite weekend

there are 2 kinds of people – those who love halloween and those who hate it.  i saw these people waiting in line to get into rickys to buy halloween accessories yesterday. these people love halloween.

the nyc halloween parade is listed as one of the things in the book 100 things to do before you die. i will be at the parade along with an estimated 2 million others to watch 45,000 marchers in fabulous costumes – that is of course if it’s not raining. but even more fun is the annual marathon on sunday. it is my favorite day of the year to be in the city. here are some of my favorite shots from last years marathon.Marathon (70)a
