Hundreds of Sunnyside children hit the streets Wednesday night in search of Halloween candy.
The children, most of whom were accompanied by their parents, were dressed in elaborate costumes. There were several batmans running around, gorillas, wizards, princesses and soldiers.
Sandy was the last thing on their minds—with many eager to get outside after being couped up at home for the past few days. “The kids have cabin fever and have been dying to get out,” said one parent.
Children combed most of the major thoroughfares in search of candy. Popular spots were on Queens Blvd. (between 48th Street and 43rd Streets) and under the Arch.
Sunnyside Gardens also continued to attract many children. However, the trick-or-treaters didn’t have access to much of 47th Street as the Parks Department was hauling off a tree that had been toppled by Sandy.
