NYC’s first ever Nuit Blanche

New York City’s first ever Nuit Blanche – an all night art event that originated in Europe in 1997 (Paris, Berlin and St. Petersburg), was held in Greenpoint, Brooklyn on October 2nd 2010.
Named “Bring to Light”, it featured 50 international artists and performers along 4 blocks around Franklyn and Noble St., and it inhabited galleries, streets, shops, vacant buildings and the American Playground park.
Restaurants, bars and stores in the area were open till late and the event drew quite a crowd. A few of the art installations in the pictures below.

Halloween extravaganza

St. John the Divine Halloween Extravaganza

Every year at the Cathedral St. John the Divine on the UWS, Halloween is celebrated with an hour and a half of entertainment: a silent movie – this year “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”, followed by the Grand Procession of Ghouls. The Cathedral’s Grand Organ provides the live soundtrack for both the movie and the Procession of Ghouls, contributing to the eerie Halloween atmosphere created within the Church.

Entering the Church, the guy in the short movie above is welcoming the visitors. Come an hour or so early and sit as close as possible to the movie screen and preferably take aisle seats.

The Grand Procession of Ghouls is a very impressive parade of characters wearing fantastic costumes, entering through smoke and walking the main aisle while interacting with the visitors. At the end, some mingling makes possible picture taking with your favorite ghoul(s), just don’t expect them to talk: they’re very quiet at all times.
Tickets are available to purchase in advance through the Cathedral’s website.

I hope the pictures show at least a bit of the fun we had.
