Don't let Halloween sneak up on you! Start now and find the costumes, candy and the best spots to document it all for a holiday with no tricks and all treats.


Find your costume at one of Union Square's costume mega-stores. Start at Halloween Adventure (104 4th Avenue) serving up spooky-wear since 1981. Find costumes and accessories for adults, kids and even pets. Party City (38 West 14th Street) offers a selection of costumes and masks alongside everything you'll need for your Halloween bash.


Start enjoying pumpkin spiced everything with the help of Trader Joe's plethora of pumpkin flavored goods like ice cream, bread mix, cheesecake and more. Pick up fresh pumpkin and squash at the Union Square Greenmarket for both dinner and décor. Shop Dylan's Candy Bar 2017 Halloween Collection for unique treats to gift or share with friends like marshmallow pops, green apple caramel popcorn, monster mash gummies and more.

Instagram Worthy Photo Spots

Share your costume, candy and fall pics with @UnionSquareNY all month long around the Square. 

  1. For the optimal candy shot, use our signature bistro tables as your backdrop for guaranteed likes.
