Seen & Heard: The Annual Trick-or-Treating Question

••• We go through this every year…. Is trick-or-treating at local businesses happening after the parade/party on Sunday, October 30; on Halloween itself (Monday, October 31); or on both? UPDATE 10/22: See comments from Reade Street Animal Hospital, Tribeca Treats, and Torly Kid.

••• Tomorrow (Saturday) is the Tribeca Alliance’s Family Day at Bogardus Plaza from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. “There will be several activities, a play area, a craft table, toss-a-ring, Play-Doh table, hula hoop demo, snacks, two balloon artists, two face painters, and much more,” says Ann Benedetto of A Uno Tribeca. “Everything is free donated by the small business of Tribeca.”

••• Fowler & Wells doesn’t seem to be taking online reservations yet, but you can make one by calling 212-658-1848.

••• The P.S. 150 Rummage Sale is Tuesday, October 25, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.: “We have a ton of great stuff this year, and a bake sale will be running concurrently for anyone who likes to snack while they browse a wide assortment of lightly used clothes, toys, housewares and more.”

••• I hadn’t realized that the south side of the Beekman condo tower has a trompe l’oeil effect going on.

  1. Reade Street Animal Hospital will have candy for the kids on Halloween Day Monday October 31st! 8am-6pm =)

  2. At Tribeca Treats we’ll be welcoming trick or treaters on Monday the 31st starting after school (3 pm) until we close at 7 (or as long as supplies last.)

  3. As always, Torly Kid will have candy for trick or treaters on 10/31. We begin at 3pm and go until we run out. And if you can guess how many pieces we will give out this year, you can win $25 credit (guess in store or on FB)!
