Children knew that Pets Unlimited, on 46th street, was the place to be for this Halloween.
Throngs of children were outside the store as they waited for their turn to collect a little plastic bag with water and a goldfish inside.
The store owner Steve De Simone was keeping to tradition by giving away 4,400 goldfish every Halloween between the hours of 8:00 am and 8:00 pm yesterday.
“This store has being doing this for nearly 50 years,” De Simone said. “I know I have being doing it since I came here in 1973.”
