PHOTOS TAKEN BY, OR COURTESY OF, FRIENDS OF CHELSEA GREEN | Halloween in the year of the vaccine was nothing like 2020, when COVID-19 precautions compelled event organizers to cancel what would have been the second annual observance of late October festivities in the beloved West 20th Street pocket park located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. Having opened its gates to the public in 2019, Chelsea Green remains younger than most of the youthful demographic that showed up on October 31 this year–numbering nearly 400 at its most well-attended moment. That number, nearly twice what event organizers expected, is validation for the decade-plus work that went into securing the space, building the park, and making it the place to be when you want something to do (or feel like doing nothing).
