New York Hotels are expensive so plan ahead. Book now and pay on arrival.
Village Halloween Parade NYC has some of the best parties in the USA.
Before you head out to some of the best Halloween parties in NYC, you must participate in the Village Halloween Parade—NYC’s spookiest procession and one of the best Halloween events in Gotham. With over 50,000 zombies, giant puppets and politicans taking the streets, you may need a little help with navigation. So dress up in your best Halloween costume ideas for New Yorkers (or else you won’t be allowed to march), work on your Halloween makeup ideas and get ready for a ghoulishly good time.
The Halloween Parade runs up Sixth Ave from Spring St to 16th St in Manhattan. The Village Halloween Parade is on Halloween eve and typically goes from 7–11pm.
Costumes are mandatory for anyone who wants to walk, so make sure you bring it or you’ll be left behind in civilian duds. The procession lines up at Sixth Ave and Canal St and rolls out from 7–9pm. North and west entrances to Sixth Ave will be blocked off by 6:30pm, so join the line from East Broome, Sullivan and Canal streets east of Sixth Ave. We recommend gathering your fellow creatures of the night a few blocks away rather than trying to find your group in the middle of the chaotic lineup.
Just because you’re not wearing a costume this year doesn’t mean you don’t get to party. Get to Sixth Ave early and grab a lookout spot before the parade rolls out at 7pm. Sixth Ave becomes most congested with spectators between Bleeker and 14th Sts, so we suggest setting up camp at either the head (Spring to W Houston Sts) or tail (14th St to 16th St) of the parade.
We have chosen hotels in time square; this keeps you close to all the pride events and within walking distance of some of the gay bars, and a short taxi ride to the others. Best Western Plus President Hotel at Times Square, Westin New York at Times Square,InterContinental New York Times Square and the New York Marriott Marquis are highly recommended and offer great rates when booked in advance.
