This just in: according to real estate website Zillow, Boston ranks 2nd on their list of the Top 20 Best Cities to Trick-Or-Treat,
falling just below San Francisco and just above Honolulu (New York
didn't even make the list.) And while that's great news for all the
kiddies in town looking to stockpile Snickers this year, we're hoping
Zillow's Trick-Or-Treat index also applies to adult Halloween
extracurriculars. Is Boston the 2nd Best City to Party for Halloween?
We'd like to think we're number one, actually. Zillow also broke it down
to the top five 'hoods to beg for candy in town. Since we're pretty sure
that the only thing anyone over the age of twelve is going to get if
they go knocking on doors in a scary mask next weekend is a trip
downtown courtesy of the BPD, we went ahead and rounded up the
age-appropriate festivities going down in said neighborhoods. Congrats,
Boston, #2 ain't too shabby.
