Get your costumes ready, because we’ve gathered some great Halloween events for you (page 10)—and you don’t even have to leave Queens! Plus, there are a few other ways to spook yourself in the pages of BORO. Vampires will take over Astoria when a new web series, “You Only Die Once,” is filmed here (page 22). Get some friends together and get your hearts racing as you try to beat the clock at Locked, the new escape the room game right in our neighborhood (page 38). Or, if you’ve always been afraid of needles, perhaps now’s the time to face your fears, because community acupuncture (page 45) will now be available near the Ditmars stop (you know you’ve always wanted to try it). Got any tips, news or stories you’d like to share with BORO? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. And make sure to share your Halloween photos with us on social media! You can find us on Twitter (@BOROMAG) and Instagram (@boromagazine).
