Kids for Halloween

Halloween in Harlem by Amy Stein (2005)
 Halloween meets fine art. Let me introduce to you, dear readers, my favorite photographs involving costumed kids at play on the streets of New York. In the 1940s, Helen Levitt documented the play life of New York City kids. Sixty-three years later, Amy Stein follows up with her homage. The atmosphere in both snapshots are haunting and yet, I'm happy to see the spirit of Halloween on display with it.
