Many of Harlem's prettiest brownstone streets go all out for Halloween, but every year one uptown block outdoes them all: Hamilton Terrace.
By the end of October, this beautiful, secluded street stretching from 141st to 144th Street in the Hamilton Heights Historic District—it's just across the street from founding father Alexander Hamilton's home—abounds in ghouls, skeletons and creepy crawlers.
This year there's even a huge, green, blow-up Frankenstein hanging from one of the townhouses in the middle of the block.
Much of the street's historic architecture is a natural backdrop for Halloween. The corner house at 72 Hamilton Terrace has a mansard roof, the favored look of every haunted house.
It's a short but spooky stroll—the perfect activity on this socially-distanced Halloween.
