4. Halloween Impalements: The Toll of Time
This Halloween, pumpkins carved by artist Jane Greengold and residents of Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood will be impaled on the 273 sharp posts located along the fence at Kane Street and Strong Place. Greengold started this yearly Halloween tradition in 1998 with her friend (and fence owner) Chip Gray. Though Greengold originally carved all the pumpkins herself, she now accepts outside contributions, bringing together the Cobble Hill community in celebration of the spookiest holiday of the year. Every pumpkin in Halloween Impalements: The Toll of Time is given its own unique expressive face.
On Halloween night, the pumpkins will be illuminated, serving as a perfect attraction for trick-or-treaters. Over the following weeks, the pumpkins will be left to rot on the posts, having stayed in past years all the way until Christmas.
