Nothing says October in Westchester County like colorful leaves and scary stories. Once Halloween time rolls around, it can be a lot of fun to learn about local myths and legends. For those who don't mind a little scare, our REALTORS® compiled a list of Westchester County destinations with haunted histories. If you're brave enough, driving by these spooky locations can be a fun activity with friends or even a Halloween date night idea.
While the normal round of festive Halloween social activities may be shut down this fall, you can still make the most of the spooky season by decorating your front porch with pumpkins, scarecrows, scary cats, and whatever suits your fancy.
For most of us, decorating the front of our homes involves a frightful (or it could be friendly) jack o' lantern. Most likely you're an old hand at carving, but if you're not, here are some instructions to make yours stand out among all your neighbors' efforts. If you're looking to attract the attention of Westchester County homeowners, buyers and sellers, read on and get carving.
