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:

  1. NYC, New York
  2. Jersey City, New Jersey
  3. Santa Ana, California
  4. Las Vegas, Nevada
  5. Anaheim, California
  6. Los Angeles, California
  7. Chicago, Illinois
  8. Laredo, Texas
  9. San Diego, California
  10. Gilbert, Arizona
