Put down your costumes, candy and jacko’
lanterns for a moment: it’s time for a more
spine-chilling aspect of Halloween.
We dug up western Queens’ gruesome
ghost stories and spooky tales — it turns out
that our neighborhood has quite a few (page
16). Next time you picnic near the Hell Gate
Bridge or grab a cocktail at The Astor Room,
you’ll be able to impress your friends with one
of these local legends.
This month, we’re also highlighting some
of the many places you can find live music
(page 32), as well as readers’ music-themed
Instagram photos (page 10).
Plus, we’ve got a few recently opened spots
in Astoria where you can try new food: frozen
treats at Gelato & Co. (page 22), Hawaiian
poke at PokeWave (page 38) and Mexican fare at Fresco’s Cantina (page 50).
