This one goes out to all the candy addicts and costume-obsessed – New York was just named the best city in America for celebrating Halloween!
A new study by WalletHub compared 100 of the largest cities in the US on 18 Halloween-y metrics to determine the creepiest, crawliest, most utterly-spooktacular metros across the country. Among those factors considered were the average percent of Trick-or-Treaters, the number of good Trick-or-Treating neighborhoods and the amount of bars and dance clubs per capita.
New York, for all it’s worth, came in at number 1 (!!!!), with a particularly strong performance in the number of candy stores and costume shops per capita.
Other cities that rounded up the top ten included:
- NYC, New York
- Jersey City, New Jersey
- Santa Ana, California
- Las Vegas, Nevada
- Anaheim, California
- Los Angeles, California
- Chicago, Illinois
- Laredo, Texas
- San Diego, California
- Gilbert, Arizona
