If the horror of Frankenstorm has not spooked you enough, the Haunted Pumpkin Garden at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx has just what you need to awaken the fear and cheer of Halloween. This year, expert pumpkin carver, Ray Villafane, went wild on a series of giant pumpkins. Following a short walk through the garden’s tree-lined paths awaits creepy, crawly pumpkin spiders littering ivy, a whopping 1,872 pound pumpkin, and a gut-leaking creature ripping frightened pumpkins from their roots. These artful creations will be on view until Halloween day so act fast and get into the macabre spirit!
