Yesterday, I took a break from all my edits and event photography work to head north of the city for a visit to the town of Sleepy Hollow. Made famous by the Washington Irving tale of The Headless Horseman, the town joyfully capitalizes on the story’s mythology, and celebrates the spirit of Halloween.
I’ve been wanting to go to Sleepy Hollow, which was just a 40 minute train ride north of the city, for YEARS. I love ghosts, Halloween, and “spooky” things, so I was incredibly excited to finally have time to make the trip.
One of the fun “attractions” I was able to stop by was Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Night time lantern tours are offered, and there is even a two-evening night-time photography workshop (that I’m very sad I can’t attend!) in the month of October.
