I had a great Halloween. Aaron and I spent it in Hyde Park, first walking through the neighborhood streets crowded with trick-or-treaters, all of the houses decorated and glowing with orange light, leaves crunching beneath our feet. It was classic Halloween. Then we went to a showing of Phantom of the Opera at the Rockefeller Chapel. This 1925 silent adaptation with Lon Chaney was accompanied by real organ music from the chapel. Very cool. As we walked back to the train we passed by so many University Halloween parties and students in costume. It was just the perfect, classic Halloween.
p.s. I believe the Obama family was trick-or-treating in Hyde Park that evening
